Do i really need to spoof my mac? Can the people i'm doing security testing on (Under contract) find me?
Also can i connect to a VPN inside the pineapple?

This is how:

ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig wlan0 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55
ifconfig wlan0 up

People can generally find you if they know what their doing.

You could connect the pineapple to a vpn, just install the packages you need.

There's a few ways. I personally find

ifconfig wlanX down

macchanger -r wlanX

ifconfig wlanX up

easier. Also a third option is to change it directly under option macaddr in ur /etc/config/wireless. If u do that it's good to add an "option phy phyX" above it though.

Just temporarily. A reboot will reset the MAC.

If you want persistence you could add it to your /etc/rc.local file!

I put this in my rc.local file

ifconfig wlan0 down
macchanger -r wlan0
ifconfig wlan0 up 

and it changes the mac address of the interface however i am no longer able to see the SSID or connect, i placed it bellow the comment that says do not touch anything above this line.

Put this instead:

ifconfig wlan0 down
macchanger -r wlan0
wifi

That will not only bring up the wifi interface but also start hostapd again.

Sorry, just tried that and the log shows that the mac address is being changed but it then reverts to the default one.

Ok it seems like hostapd is changing the mac address after it has been changed by macchanger. I tried putting a fake mac in /etc/config/wireless in place of the existing one however that did not work and the AP never went up. What do i need to modify to get this to work?

thank you
