#8065 new defect

macaddr does not work for eth0 with atheros chip (fonera)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: Backfire 10.03
Keywords: macaddr Cc:


config 'interface' 'wan'

option 'ifname' 'eth0'
option 'macaddr' 00:11:22:33:44:55

is not effective, original mac is always showing. neither is the following:

ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55
ifconfig: SIOCSIFHWADDR: Operation not supported

however, macaddr works for ath0, or if the wan type is bridge with eth0 (in this case, br-wan is showing as macaddr, but not eth0, which is part of the bridge)
