How to change mac address

Changing mac address in one interface at linux is extremely simple.

All you have to do is:

ifconfig ath0 hw ether ne::w::mac::addr::e::ss::


Using this method will change your mac address temporary only, until the next reboot.

Alternatively you can install the macchanger package which has the following features:

* set specific MAC address of a network interface
* set the MAC randomly
* set a MAC of another vendor
* set another MAC of the same vendor
* set a MAC of the same kind (eg: wireless card)
* display a vendor MAC list (today, 6200 items) to choose from

It also has a nice gui: macchanger-gtk
