Re: Question DHCP and manually set MAC address (Andreas Hotz)

That's totally brain dead.  You need to talk to your IT people and
give them your card's MAC address if necessary, so that they can
configure the DHCP server to recognize it.

Most cards do not permit overriding the MAC address.  And almost none
of the Linux net drivers provide an interface for doing it.
