10.3: Change Ethernet MAC address from the Terminal
Authored by: shaoyeh on Feb 04, '05 12:01:53PM

i can't seem to get this to work, i ran

sudo ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

there was no error and subsequent 'ifconfig en0' showed the changed MAC address.

but when i tried to obtain an IP thru DHCP from my router, it timed out and assigned itself an IP. my router is not set to do any MAC filtering. does anyone else have this problem?

i'm currently using 10.3.7.

also, when i used the sudo ifconfig command to change back to my original MAC, it grabbed an IP just fine.
