This really does the trick and it introduced other problems. Although I was able to change it for a few seconds to the original MAC by typing, while connecting, it could not. Not even with my first wifi.
Starting nm-applet showed severe error, unable to start and all. I stopped the connection tries, stopped the networkmanager, exited the shell, opened a new shell. Then I clicked on the icon of wifi and tried to connect with my first wifi, it connected, but the MAC again was the previous one.
One fellow linux user too is facing this issue, http://forums.devshed.com/networking...ess-85720.html
I think I'll have to add this MAC to the filter and then check.
