Hi everybody!

  my name's Aleix and this is my first mail to this list.
I have a Freerunner with SHR since last march and I'm very happy :)

but i have had a problem tryng to change the mac adress of the wlan
(eth0). I tried whith:
# ifconfig eth0 down hw ether 00:00:00:aa:aa:aa

or with
# ip link set eth0 down
# ip link set addr 00:00:00:aa:aa:aa dev eth1

but the result is ever the same:
"SIOCSIFHWADDR: Operation not supported"

What can I do?

please, excuse me for my bad english
best regards
