Available through the GUI also, not just a command line hint...

10.3: Change Ethernet MAC address from the Terminal
Authored by: nobody on Nov 07, '03 01:54:32PM

- Under Jaguar the command does exists, however there is no support built into the kernel.
- I also thought I might find access through the GUI interface to this function, but did not find it. Where is it if not in Network, Advanced Ethernet configuration Page ?
- probably does not work with Airport. But does work on my G4 AGP and G4 Cube.

10.3: Change Ethernet MAC address from the Terminal
Authored by: simonpie on Nov 07, '03 08:31:32PM

It was possible to patch the kernel in jaguar to change the mac address, maybe the same thing is possible under panther so that one can change the aiport mac address.

How to change MAC address from GUI
Authored by: MacOSXAddict on Nov 10, '03 09:03:34AM

Hi Sorry it took so long to respond.

To change the MAC address from the GUI you go to the Network control pannel, and select the Built in Ethernet (or other card) when you see the button bar that looks kind like (TCP/IP|PPPoE|AppleTTalk|Proxies|Ethernet) Select the Ethernet tap and below select configure and move it to manually- advanced. You can then enter your changed mac address info directly...

Wait, My Bad :(

I'm sorry, I just checked again one mu mac here at work and found that you can change the speed and duplex, but the mac address is un-selectable. I saw it there when I was digging arround when I installed Panther but didn't try to edit it... Sorry for the mistake.
