So I have this school project on MAC address and MAC spoofing. I did the research and now I wanted to do a little practical to get to understand how everything works when you put it together. so here the problem,

I'm on my macbook running ubuntu on a virtualbox. I check my router logs and my virtualbox show up and it shows me the MAC address of my ubuntu. so i spoof my ubuntu MAC address and check my logs again and it worked, but I can't access the internet. Any ideas what i'm doing wrong..

thank you for you time.

Not sure if this is the case for virtualbox, but VMwar only accepts a certain range for MAC addresses, so if you do not adhere to that range, it might be the reason it does not work.

Did you try sniffing the netwerk (arp) traffic coming from you virtualbox machine?
