MAC Address Problem

Postby alwaysbless » Tue Nov 27, 2012 11:13 am

Just a headsup for anyone looking to purchase this device it has the same mac address problem as the UG007 (i.e. Whenever it is powered off and powered on it has a new mac address) its really annoying if you got this to use with the bluetooth function because it constantly makes you repair everything

They are talking about it on FB

MINIX noted, we will look into this issue, do you mean the Mac Address of the Ethernet port or the WiFi??

Wifi, ethernet, AND bluetooth all have the mac address problems. I dont even need to restart my device to replicate it, by simply disabling wifi/ehternet/bluetooth and re-enabling it it will cause the mac address to change

My wifi works great since 4.04, but need to repair for bluetooth every time after reboot.
The bluetooth issue is gone after update to 4.1.1.

Not sure for ethernet since I never use it.

So the 4.1 update resolves the mac address changing after each reboot or restart of the interface? Do you mind sharing the link you download the fw update from because the sendspace one posted by another user is labeled as a rar.exe, Also what tool did you use to flash the firmware?

No the 4.1 doesn't resolve the ac issue. Minix claimed it on facebook. In yousendit you hve to uncheck download yousendit download manager and then you will be able to download the 250mb. File

Ive tested this issue and the WLAN does not have mac address problems at all even after a full power cycle. However, the bluetooth loses it mac address by simply disabling/re-enabling the interface or power cycling, and finally ethernet only loses it mac address after a full power cycle (Disabling/Re-enabling retains the same mac address)

Does anyone know if the MAC changing issue has been fixed?
