mac address reassignment

# ip link set dev wlan0 down
# ip link set dev wlan0 address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
# ip link set dev wlan0 up


confirmed working with actually dropping the network manager connections before hand... so note to completely disconnect from the router before running the commands.


original mac address will return to the device upon network restart, alternate wifi ap selection, and possibly upon disconnect. imitate known wireless brands. (some cards/routers don't like some arbitrary mac addresses)
