Didn't work.
Changing it in the source would solve it for sure, but, there is SO MUCH
CODE... (where should i start?)

How are you confirming the change (or lack thereof)?  I do it every day
and for years now on most versions of madwifi.  It definitely works.
Changing it in the source is not the answer (although it would work).
Something else is wrong.

How about a little more info?  What distro are you using, version of
madwifi?  Version of the kernel?  mods you have made?


lspci -nn
        Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01)

madwifi version

Ubuntu 8.04 original kernel version

wpa_supplicant version
Connection with unecncrypted AP works perfetctly. (In fact, it's the best wifi card I ever got)
Connection with WPA protected and MAC addr filtering don't.

Couldn't test WPA without MAC filtering, so, i really don't know if it is a problem with wpa_supplicant, but i am quite sure it is not. It's the same behaviour when i don't change my Mac addr and try to connect.

I want to make sure my Mac addr is changed by hardcoding to the source.
So, i found this comment inside ". Looks interesting.
         * Define the scheme that we select MAC address for multiple BSS on the same radio.
         * The very first VAP will just use the MAC address from the EEPROM.
         * For the next 3 VAPs, we set the U/L bit (bit 1) in MAC address,
         * and use the higher bits as the index of the VAP.

I want to use the MAC addr from my old laptop so I don't have to wait weeks for the crazy burocracy.
