    Default Edimax 7318USG Macchanger Error

    My Edimax worked in BT3 and BT4 Final. I am now experiencing a macchanger error in BT4R1. I use the following commands to configure the card:

    modprobe rt73
    airmon-ng
    airmon-ng stop rausb0
    ifconfig rausb down
    macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 rausb0


    Upon which the following error is presented:

    ERROR: Can't change MAC: interface up or not permission: Operation not supported

    I have searched the forum and referred to the interface in several ways (e.g., wlan0 and mon0) to no avail. Otherwise, the card appears to work in all other aspects. Does anyone have a suggetsion?

    Restart so you're working clean.

    ifconfig rausb0 down
    macchanger -m xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
    ifconfig rausb0 up


    Let me know if this fixes it.
