regarding the Airport driver, it is impossible to change mac address
now, because of how it's made.. or somesuch.. Mick can elaborate on
this. I don't know why IOXPERT driver set is crippled like this. It is
trivial to change mac address on all my other computers with my pccard
and other network crap, and a driver I pay 25USD for really should
allow this :(

I have never had success changing the MAC address of my wireless card(s), but I have been able to change it on my built-on wired ethernet card. I think this has more to do with the Operating System VS the Hardware doesn't it?
I know back with 10.1 there was a kernel mod' that allowed the changing of your MAC address. From what I understand, since 10.2 it's "allowed" by the kernel. But if you get that error, it means the Hardware (the card) doesn't want to do it.
If anyone knows a way around that, I too would like to hear it. ;-)

I use a classic orinoco gold ( 8410-EU ) pccard with the ioxperts driver set. When I attempt to modify the mac address manually thus:
sudo ifconfig en3 ether 10:10:10:10:10:10
I get the usual ( !! ) error that i get with the shit airport driver: ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCAIFADDR): Operation not supported
I emailed ioxpert support and they had nothing useful to say.
I am quite pleased with the ioxpert driver set - this one thing is just stupid and annoying. How do you guys out there with a ( nearly ) identical card change the mac address?
And which utilities do you use to update the firmware on your cards?
