Macchanger issue

2 posts in this topic

I seem to have an issue with macchanger that I cannot resolve. I am using an Alfa '36 usb adapter with the RTL8187 chipset on BT5.

When I place wlan2 (my Alfa card) in monitor mode using airmon-ng, it makes a new interface "mon0". For some reason mon0 shows the real mac address an not the faked one that has been given to wlan2. To further complicate matters, I cannot change the mac for mon0.

What am I doing wrong, and how can I resolve this?

The commands I use are as follows:

airmon-ng (check interfaces)

airmon-ng stop wlan2

macchanger wlan2 or macchanger --mac-11:22:33:44:55:66 wlan2

airmon-ng start wlan2 (channel)

macchanger -s wlan2 (displays the faked mac)

macchnager -s mon0 (displays the real mac)

mon0 does not exist before I start wlan2 and cannot be changed afterwords because it is in use.

mon0 is a virtual adapter that allows your computer to interpret traffic from your actual interface. As long as you spoof wlan2's address you're spoofing properly.
