Fonera 2100 - ifconfig: SIOCSIFHWADDR: Operation not supported

Description

shortly:

ifconfig: SIOCSIFHWADDR: Operation not supported

IT SEEMS THAT THE DRIVER FOR FONERA ETHERNET PORT DOESN'T SUPPORT MAC CLONING!

longer description:

Hi,

I put Backfire 10.03.1-rc4 on my fonera 2100.

Then I tried to change the MAC for the lan interface.

/etc/config/network: option 'macaddr' '00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx'

Then I restarted the fonera. In arp Table from client I saw the right mac-address but the fonera was not accessible. Then I deleted this entry via serial-connection and it worked.

Why it doesn't work to change the MAC of the lan interface?

ADDON 1:

When I change the MAC of lan interface via webif, only the MAC of br-lan will be changed. The mac of eth0 stays the original one. But the MAC from eth0 is not changeable. :-(

On a WRT54GL it was no problem to change the MAC. :-(

ADDON 2:

I also tried

ifconfig br-lan down
ifconfig br-lan hw ether 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
ifconfig br-lan up

The MAC is changed but the fonera is not accessible.

Then I tried to change the MAC of eth0 but there I only get this message: ifconfig: SIOCSIFHWADDR: Operation not supported

Has anyone an idea what there is wrong?

ADDON 3:
