How to spoof wifi NIC mac on WIND U100
 
I'm interested in how can I change my wireless interface MAC so I can spoof somebody else's one on a wireless network ?

ifconfig ra0 hw ether MAC - didn't work. Whenever I brought the interface up again, the MAC would change to the original (first) one.

I'm using Ubuntu netbook remix on a 2.6.28-14-generic kernel.
My WiFi card is RaLink RT2860 and I'm using rt2860sta linux module and it works in all modes, monitor, managed and ad-hoc.

Changing the MAC on a WiFi card is not permanent, you need to keep changing it every time.

In a root terminal Type (Im in PCLOS)

apt-get install machanger

apt-get install aircrack-ng

airmon-ng stop wlan0

ifconfig wlan0 down

macchanger --mac 00:00:00:00:00:00 wlan0 (Would use all 0's though)

airomon-ng start wlan0

And there u are u've changed you Mac Address.:) But you'll have to do it on every boot up

Since the OP has openly admitted to attempting to impersonate, for lack of a better word, somebody else, AND since the potential is forming for this thread to become a "Using Aircrack to steal Wifi" question, I'm reporting it for closure, as in my opinion it already is in violation of LQ Rules.
