I am working on a project where I need a wireless network where I can freely and easily change the MAC address on the Gateway.

I have a Tonido Plug2, which runs linux and is only accessible through SSH and a largely locked down web interface.

The Web interface has a section for the wireless where I can activate a "hotspot" mode that enables the wireless as an access point. I tested to make sure it was working, however I cannot change the MAC address from the web interface.

I've found multiple walk-through articles on changing the wireless MAC in Linux, but all direct me to either

  1. run iwconfig and I get:

      lo no wireless extensions.
      eth0 no wireless extensions.


  1. run " nano /etc/network/interfaces" when I should have eth0 and eth1 for my wired and wireless, i get just eth0
