more than likely. Probably set by the firmware which all of them have been loaded with the same copy... now you need a tool to change the mac addresses... I don't know of any(any longer) offhand, but I'm sure that someone will pop by shortly with a suggestion... you might even be able to do it with a terminal and the shipped linux tools, but you'll need someone who's looked into to it more recently than I've had to, and knows more about what comes with the GT fw, or can point you to the tools needed(if any).I wouldn't be surprised if other mfg tablets are the same way...mogrith;29361 said:

That MAC turns up in a pastebin of a dmesg posted today, no idea who posted it ('linckraker' on the XDA forums, maybe? or maybe a totally different device?)

projectgus;29542]Three interesting things come to [URL=mind:-]mind:-[/URL] If the wireless hardware is Atheros then it should be possible to change the MAC from software said:It's not madwifi. That's for a completely different kind of hardware. This is the driver for the chipset they're using: nv-tegra.nvidia.com Git - 3rdparty/atheros.git/summaryThey don't ship these chips from the factory with MAC addresses at all. It's the responsibility of the device manufacturer to obtain a valid block of MAC addresses from the IEEE.- Atheros wouldn't have shipped all of their Wifi chipsets from the factory with the same MAC, unless it's either (a) a collosal mistake, (a dodgy Atheros ripoff in hardware (unlikely but possible) or (c) the MAC is being changed to this value in software.That's not it. They were just too cheap to pay the IEEE for an OUI (which is $1650) or they didn't know they needed to. It's just like everything else about this device - hey, those copies of Documents To Go and QuickOffice are legal, right? And the Market? And I'd bet a dollar you won't find a FCC ID anywhere on the device or on the documentation even though they put the FCC logo on it...- If the MAC is being set explicitly in software, this reminds me of the licensing protection mechanism that Aiteer put into the firmware that Eken use. They match the MAC to another serial number stored inside the SoC, and a potential way to bypass that protection mechanism would be set both the serial number and MAC to a known "OK" value in software.
