yes, and most ethernet card which used realtech's chip can easily be re-programed. the others, you have to take out the E2PROM to re-program it and mount it on the card.

remember, you can not have the same mac address's machine on the same network.

You can't have it on the same ethernet network (even switched), but
simple router (which controls the network traffic at 3rd layer of the ISO/OSI model, usually the IP layer) could solve the problem.

Have a nice day,
