    How do I successfully spoof the MAC address on a broadcom wifi card

    I have two identical laptops (hp touchsmart tm2's) running ubuntu 10.04. I want to be able to access them using a vpn (neorouter), but this causes problems as they have the same mac address and so neorouter thinks they are the same machine.

    I have tried every way I (and google) can think of to change the mac address but once the mac address is changed the wifi card will no longer connect.

    I have searched through ubuntuforums as thoroughly but any posts on this issue are at least a year old, and no seemed to find an answer.

    Has anyone successfully managed to change the mac address on a Broadcom card (using broadcom sta driver).

    Just in-case it helps, here is my ifconfig readout:

    eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr c4:17:fe:10:76:72
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::c617:feff:fe10:7672/64 Scope:Link
    RX packets:36222 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:10
    TX packets:40814 errors:16 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:6830072 (6.8 MB) TX bytes:7340630 (7.3 MB)

    And the content of lshw -c network:

    description: Wireless interface
    product: Broadcom Corporation
    vendor: Broadcom Corporation
    physical id: 0
    bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0
    logical name: eth1
    version: 01
    serial: c4:17:fe:10:76:72

    configuration: broadcast=yes driver=wl0 driverversion= ip= latency=0 multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn
    resources: irq:17 memory:e2400000-e2403fff

    ALL suggestions welcome! I can not stress that enough. I am going crazy over here!
