Hi all!

Basic to intermediate linux user here.

I managed to get my DWA-130 D-Link wireless USB adapter running, using ndiswrapper

I had trouble at first, but realized the drivers I was using didn't play nicely with AES, so I made a quick hotspot from my android phone, left it unencrypted, and I was shortly hooked up!

Anyways.

The problem I'm having is with the
Code:
ifconfig wlan0 hw ether
command, to change the MAC address on the fly...

I know some hardware won't work nicely with this... and I'm wondering if I'm just doing it wrong... or if it's just the hardware.

I have at least 4 of these USB adapters (weird, I know) and it would really suck if none of them are able to change MAC addresses!

i might chalk this up to the hardware...

because I just tried on my Windows 7 machine, and it wouldn't work either

Mad

So if anybody is attempting to screw around with their D-Link DWA-130 wireless USB adapter, you might be out of luck

sorry guys

Code:
ifconfig wlan0 down
ifconfig wlan0 hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig wlan0 |grep HWaddr


Above should work, have you tried changing using macchanger?
