Maybe you're just looking at it wrong. There should be at least two MAC addresses on there. One for your ethernet connection and one for you wireless connection. You can post your ipconfig /all results here if you're not sure.

@KujinR - Yes, there was 1 for the internal network card, and 1 for D-link wireless...
What I did was, find the right folder for D-link, erased the existing NetworkAddress key, right click, make new,
string value, name it "NetworkAddress" and entered desired address.

After that I reboot the computer, checked the registry again, value I entered is there, run, cmd, ipconfig/all,
it has its original MAC Address.

My computer is down at the moment. When I get it up running again, I'll take some screenshots of what I did. If any of you guys need some specific screenshots, please do tell me! Appreciate all your help fellas.
