macchanger errors...


Recommended Posts

hopefully someone can help me out here...

I thought I would play with macchanger and decided to change the mac of wlan1 so I did this from ssh:

ifconfig wlan1 down
macchanger -r wlan1
ifconfig wlan1 up

so far so good I had a new mac....

then wlan1 reconnected to my home wifi in client mode however it lost its default gateway in the network tab so no internet access.

In wifi manager it now showed

radio1 - enabled

no wlan1 and no new mac. below it did show it as being connected to my home ap

I unplugged my mk5 and when I plugged it back in some hours latter my wlan1 mac was back to normal however it was now radio2....

in wifi manager:

radio0 wlan0 enabled ##:##:##:##:##:##
radio1 - enabled
radio2 wlan1 enabled ##:##:##:##:##:##

so thats a little weird....

a little confused as to why it will not reset the default gateway after changing the mac (it does get a ping-able ip on my local network) and very confused how I wound up with an extra radio


disconnecting and reconnecting did not reset the gateway, trying my other network did not get a gateway
