View Full Version : [ubuntu] macchanger not working as i think it should

January 9th, 2013, 04:03 AM
hey all,
trying to set a temporary mac on wlan1.

i have read a lot of tutorials regarding macchanger that seem pretty easy. However, i don't ever get the 'faked' mac.

here is what happens
i take that device down.. ifconfig wlan1 down.. then..

sudo macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan1
Permanent MAC: 00:c0:ca:6c:9a:06 (Alfa, Inc.)
Current MAC: 00:c0:ca:6c:9a:06 (Alfa, Inc.)
New MAC: 00:11:22:33:44:55 (Cimsys Inc)

any ideas? thanks
