Default [Q] MAC Address Block

Is there an app like I can install to my root htc android phone so that I can be unblocked from accessing the router? I think our network admin blocked my phones IP address to prevent me from spoofing the network. Thanks

your network admin probably blocked your MAC address (not IP) or restricted the network access to some MAC address only.

The IP address is assigned to a device by the network (i.e DHCP protocol)

The MAC address is the one specific to your device (hardware related), the one that can be banned from a network. You can spoof your MAC address (unless only specific MAC address are granted by your admin) to connect back to the network. You must spoof the mac before each attempt to connect to the network.

Maybe there is a way to change the MAC permanently, idk
