Changing BSSID and SSID from command line


Recommended Posts

this is the script i call from a dip switch to run at startup.

## random host name

## assign newhn a random variable
newhn=$(cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'A-Za-z' | head -c8)

##update host name and hosts
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

##random ssid for wlan0
newssid=$(cat /dev/urandom | tr -dc 'A-Za-z' | head -c8)
uci set wireless.@wifi-iface[0].ssid=$newssid
uci commit
