There are two methods for spoofing a MAC address: installing and configuring either iproute2 or macchanger. Both of them are outlined below. It will probably look something like this:. The first step to spoofing the MAC address is to bring the network interface down. It can be accomplished with the command:. Next, we actually spoof our MAC. Any hexadecimal value will do, but some networks may be configured to refuse to assign IP addresses to a client whose MAC does not match up with any of known vendors.
Therefore, unless you control the network s you are connecting to, use MAC prefix of any real vendor basically, the first three bytes , and use random values for next three bytes. For more information please read Wikipedia:Organizationally unique identifier. The final step is to bring the network interface back up. This can be accomplished by running the command:.

Another method uses macchanger a. It provides a variety of features such as changing the address to match a certain vendor or completely randomizing it. Install the package macchanger. The spoofing is done on per-interface basis, specify network interface name as interface in each of the following commands. To randomize only device-specific bytes of current MAC address that is, so that if the MAC address was checked it would still register as being from the same vendor , you would run the command:.
Udev allows you to perform MAC address spoofing by creating udev rules. Macs actually have 3 names, but frequently, only 2 are set. You can look them up here with the scutil terminal command. Thx gang. I'm away from the equipment for a few days but will try out the suggestions.
One thing to keep in mind is that several of the devices which are connected to the network are of course not computers printers, Apple TV units, iPhones, tablets, and various wi-fi connected devices etc. You need DNS to handle names for those devices.

This will help you narrow down the missing items. With respect to the Apple items, they should all have place to put in the device name. Back at this. Double checked. I can confirm that devices which do have a name, such as my MBPro, do not get their names consistently displayed.
How to determine your computer's hostname and hardware (MAC) address
Sometimes the device name gets displayed, sometimes the MAC address gets displayed, and sometimes the IP address gets displayed, all at the same time in AirPort utility e. I can account for all of the devices connected on the network. I haven't confirmed this yet but suspect something like this is going on. The device shows itself connected in the Time Capsule list under its Mac Address, while other devices under the same Time Capsule, at the same time, show a combination of IP addresses, device names.
I was unsuccessful, using the scutil command with the syntax you suggested, in setting the HostName. I'm interpreting your comment to mean that the Domain Name Server out somewhere in the vast internet is supposed to acquire my device's names from my network and report them back to the network, along with an IP address, so that the networked devices presently in Bridge Mode such as AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule, can display their connected device names. Although that might be correct, with my limited knowledge, that doesn't make sense to me.
My issue isn't that I can't ultimately tell which devices are which. I can visit each device e.
MAC address (media access control)
What I'm trying to do is to stabilize the network configuration as well as get the connected devices, as displayed in AirPort Utility, to consistently display their device names. As it is right now, not only are my IP connections dropping in and out but the device names being displayed in the lists for each network node e.
The reason for the change to bridge mode when you got the new modem was presumably that the old modem was acting only as a modem and your Airport had to do the the Network Address Translation function. By the way, instead of just hovering over the time capsule in Airport Utility, try double-clicking on it while holding down the option key. This will give you quite a bit more information about each device. See screenshot attached. Strung, Thx for that tip. I does give me a bit more info than clicking on the Time Capsule gives among other things the Time Capsule's Mac Addresses, one for Ethernet, and each of the 2.
Wondering whether I should be limiting my network to only 5GHz or whether that will limit the types of devices which can connect. That would limit the types of devices that can connect.
Also 5Ghz usually does not have quite the range of 2. Strung, As for the Bridge Mode, what you state is correct at least per my limited understanding. What I'm wondering though, given the recently introduced conflicts, is whether I should go back to having the modem secure just one IP address, I access the internet via that IP address, and I assign static IP addresses from the Airport Extreme under that modem?
That would mean turning off NAT on the modem, in effect setting the modem to bridge.

Can you do that? Does the ISP give you access to the modem set up page to do that? In reading through this, I definitely think it's the ISP's modem causing your issues. Yes, you will have double NAT, and that is not something you want to keep going long-term, but it will work fine for short-term testing. The primary consideration in doing that is making sure that the IP subnet created by the DSL router is different from the one and with no overlap created by your AEx.
Whether you change the DSL to a different subnet so you can keep the existing one internally or change the AEx-created subnet is up to you. This method bypasses NAT on the modem and generally works fine, but it's not the best way to do it.
Let me know if you need further explanation on any of this. Regarding double NAT, I work with a software engineer who was recently visiting friends in a very rural area, and the only internet was served from a long string of repeaters over many miles.
He ran tests and determined his Internet connectivity was going through 56 layers of NAT. He could not believe it worked at all. But, I digress Experts Exchange Solution brought to you by Your issues matter to us. I'm just now getting back to this.
