Unable to Connect to Wlan0 After Mac Spoof


Recommended Posts

Every time I change the mac address of interface wlan0 and reboot the pineapple, my laptop running ubuntu wont connect up to the pineapple. It sees the network out there and is trying to associate with it, but not able to. Any ideas?

Whats funny is that my phone doesn't even see the pineapple network.

Xrad - I will take a look

Foxtrot - I've been using a script that changes the mac addresses and hostname. It had been working three factory resets ago. Lol

# Provides: randhostnamemac
# Randomises hostname and MAC
# placed in /etc/init.d.
#create hosts.old if not there
if [ ! -a /etc/hosts.old ]; then
cp /etc/hosts /etc/hosts.old
#assign the variable newhn a random value as defined below
newhn=$(cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'A-Za-z' | head -c8)
#update hostname and hosts with new value
echo $newhn > /etc/hostname
echo "    $newhn" > /etc/hosts
cat /etc/hosts.old >> /etc/hosts
#update uci
uci set system.@system[0].hostname=$newhn
uci commit system
echo $(uci get system.@system[0].hostname) > /proc/sys/kernel/hostname
#randomise MAC for wlan0 and wlan1
ifconfig wlan0 down
macchanger -A wlan0
ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig wlan1 down
macchanger -A wlan1
ifconfig wlan1 up
