    Default wlanconfig's bug?

    Nice to meet you.

    To our regret, I am not good at English.
    There might be an incomprehensible expression because it is the one depending on the translation machine.


    It is IBM Thinkpad X31(2672-58J), and NETGEAR WPN511 though my environment.
    BT3 is moved as USB boot(CD & USB ver).

    For instance, it is assumed, the MAC address of ath0 is "00:11:22:33:44:55".


    # wlanconfig ath0 destroy
    # wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0
    # ifconfig ath0 up


    Then, the MAC address of ath0 takes the shape and the figure of "06:11:22:33:44:55"
    and the 2nd digit takes the shape of "6".
    It is "00:11:22:33:44:55" for wifi0.

    The second digit similarly becomes "6" even if it changes it with
    macchanger.
    Is this a bug?

    It is no problem in BT2Final.

    Moreover, is this a known problem?
    Or, is it only my environment?

    This is down to the atheros drivers Nothing to worry about. If you need to clone a mac I suggest you kill ath0 before creating a new sudo adapter.

    kill ath0 then use macchanger on wifi0 to set the mac, then use airmon-ng to create ath0 in monitor mode, or use
    # wlanconfig ath0 destroy
    # wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0
    # ifconfig ath0 up
    to create in managed mode.

    Thanx.

    How to kill ath0 ?

    It tried by the following methods.
    Vender ID of NETGEAR is "00:1B:2F:XX:XX:XX"
    The screen shot was taken because it was not good at English.

    Please URL cannot be pasted for the beginner and add h to above-mentioned URL.


    Why do it become "06:1B:2F:XX:XX:XX"?

    Is there a solved idea?
