    Default AWUS036H Macchanger Problem

    Having issues connecting to my access point after changing my mac. Seems to time out. I am using BT5R1 VM with Alfa RTL8187L and WPA2 PSK. I am using Network Manager. I have no issue connecting with the default mac just a faked one. I have read maybe some issues with dhclient. Also I do not have mac filtering enabled. I have been unable to find a good anwser on this. Any help would be appreciated.

    google search string intext:macchanger intext:not connect


    ifconfig wlan0 down
    macchanger -a wlan0
    ifconfig wlan0 up

    and

    ifconfig wlan0 down
    ifconfig wlan0 hw ether <mac>
    ifconfig wlan0 up

    no luck with both.

    Hmm...have you tried using macchanger to set a fully random MAC? Or using other tools to change the MAC?
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    I can't add much more than the previous comment unfortunately, but I can tell you that macchanger does work for me with that same adapter...
    Running both KDE and GNOME BT5 flawlessly. Thank you !

    WEP seems to work not WPA2. wpa_supplicant issues?

    airmon-ng start wlan0
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    macchanger -r wlan0
    ifconfig wlan0 up (works with WEP not WPA2)
