I'm trying using macchanger (ip link set wls1 down, macchanger -r wls1 and ip link set wls1 up) but it doesn't work. When I try to connect to my wifi the MAC address is set to the default value... It's strange because whet I put down the interface the Network Manager seems to be still connected to the LAN and I have to disconnect it manually. I've tried disabling the Network Manager and reenabling it after the MAC changing but nothing happened...
