You will be able to spoof mac. Please let me know the results of your tests, it worked fine for me.

yes it worked but as i mentioned in the forum, 2 things need to be done, when u apply the new mac id, the itnerface from the ppp link gets lost so it needs to be reassigned so probably that needs a patch so u dont have to go around doing it manually and also put up a note saying to restart the box when mac spoof is used coz without a reboot it doesnt apply

tried, it works well but some issues. after i enter a spoofed mac id, it gets implemented and pppoe reconnects and uses the new mac id and everything well but once i goto that spoofed mac id field and remove it and apply again, pppoe reconnects but under ppp tab etc it still keeps showing the spoofed mac id, not the original one, now i tried to do a trace from console to see what amc id its suing for the new connection but wasnt able to as my console hangs, this happens to me a couple of times when i see AT OK in console randomly, so i wasnt able to see is the original mac id being used or no but after a reboot the gui starts showing the original mac id so it might just be a gui bug but in general mac spoof works fine now, thanks

there's no way to revert a spoofed MAC short of rebooting (with PPP or anything else), the original MAC is gone once you set one. I presume it's back to its hardware MAC after rebooting?

if thats the case then it works fine, u can close this bug.
one more thing i noticed not related to this issue but just wan config, noticed this when i was trying the mac spoof, i have dial on demand ticked and the box under it says idle timeout which defaults to 0 but that value is never saved so every time u make changes in the config u need to type 0 in that box to be able to save other changes or else u keep getting the error message prompting to put in some value
