PostPosted: Sun 23 Jan 2011, 17:47    Post subject:  MAC changer GUI 1.2
Subject description: change your MAC address, updated 16th june 2013
 

macchanger
change your MAC address

(I know that can be done with ifconfig, but it broke my connection when I tested it, but this one never has)

I am not sure why you might change MAC address,
but you may need to change your mac address if:

- you are on a network that accepts only a limited number of or fixed mac addresses, and have too many devices

(my old xbox wifi adapter required me to look into this)

Here is a command line interface (terminal) tool for doing just that.

Usage:
Code:
macchanger [options] device
-h, --help Print this help
-V, --version Print version and exit
-s, --show Print the MAC address and exit
-e, --endding Don't change the vendor bytes
-a, --another Set random vendor MAC of the same kind
-A Set random vendor MAC of any kind
-r, --random Set fully random MAC
-l, --list[=keyword] Print known vendors
-m, --mac=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX Set the MAC XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX


I've attached a simple GUI for it, too.

UPDATED GUI, June 2013

Version 1.2
- added network interface selection at start of process Smile
- small fixes and error code fixes

UPDATED GUI, July 2011:

Version 1.1
- allows for creation of random MAC addresses
- creates startup script in /root/Startup to keep settings
- can create new random address at each boot

Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Categories=Network
Comment=Macchanger - edit your MAC address
Encoding=UTF-8
Exec=macchanger-gui
GenericName=Macchanger - edit your MAC address
Icon=/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/pc-2x.xpm
Name=Macchanger - edit your MAC address
Terminal=false
Type=Application


Paste the above text in a text editor and save as /usr/share/applications/mac_changer.desktop

Cos I know nothing about network interfaces, how to find/choose them, etc... Someone is welcome to enlighten me, and I will post an update.

Quote:
ifconfig wlan0 down

macchanger -a -e wlan0

ifconfig wlan0 up


You could probably automate this by adding the above to /etc/rc.d/rc.local.

after all the advice in this thread I still cant get macchanger to work.

would you make a pet file which adds the menu entry by default?

I tried to use the command prompt to change my mac and it worked.
however it just goes back to normal after a reboot.

would you post the script to make the changes permanent and also tell us where to add the script (which file and place i mean??)
