MacBook Pro MAC address


Recommended Posts

I am having some trouble changing the MAC address for the wireless network (en1) on the new model of the MacBook Pro. I can however change the MAC address for the wired network (en0) but the same command does not work for the wireless

this is the command i used for the en0 network: sudo ifconfig en0 lladdr 00:00:00:00:00:00

ive tried many different variations and have found nothing to work....

thanks in advance for any help!!

You can't change the MAC address of the Macbook or Macbook Pro's internal wireless card.

Unfortunately, Broadcom hasn't released open drivers for the cards they have in Macs. MAC address changing isn't supported, and neither is injection.

MacBook, 10.5 Leopard. This should work for MBP too.

chimaera:~ axon$ sudo ifconfig en1 ether 00:12:34:56:78:90

chimaera:~ axon$ ifconfig en1


inet6 fe80::219:e3ff:fe02:9a55%en1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x6

inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast

ether 00:12:34:56:78:90 (see?)

media: autoselect status: active

supported media: autoselect

Sometimes, you need to do "sudo ifconfig [iface] down" before changing the ethernet address. Here's how to do it on most popular platforms.
