How to change wlan0 mac address after reboot ?

Hello,

I'd like to hide original pineapple mac addresses, even after a reboot.

Of course, by defaut eth0, wlan0 and br-lan have the same mac address (00:13:37:A5:0F:01).

So I added in /etc/init.d/network, in start() function :

macchanger --mac=01:02:03:04:05:06 eth0
macchanger --mac=01:02:03:04:05:06 wlan0

...where 01:02:03:04:05:06 is the new mac address I chose.

At reboot, the eth0 and br-lan interfaces are well configured, with the 01:02:03:04:05:06 mac address.

But the wlan0 interface keeps it's original mac address (00:13:37:A5:0F:01). :(

So I tried to fix the wlan0 mac address in /etc/config/wireless, and I used :

config wifi-device 'radio0'
    option type 'mac80211'
    option hwmode '11ng'
    option macaddr '01:02:03:04:05:06'
    [...]

But after a reboot the wlan0 interface keeps it's original mac address (00:13:37:A5:0F:01), and in the file /etc/config/wireless new configurations were automatically added at the bottom :

config wifi-device 'radio2'
    option type 'mac80211'
    option hwmode '11ng'
    option macaddr '00:13:37:A5:0F:01'
    [...]

config wifi-iface
    option device 'radio2'
    [...]

So, how to fix the mac address for wlan0, even after a reboot ?

Regards.

Hi,

Thanks you ! That's perfect.

It works as requested.

Have a good day !

PS: for those who just want the simplicity, in the /etc/config/wireless write the

option macaddr '01:02:03:04:05:06'

not in the config wifi-device 'radio0'

but write it in the config wifi-iface section corresponding to radio0
