Change the MAC address on Raspberry Pi


As you know, the MAC (Media Access Control) address is the unique identifier of a network interface.

On any personal computer running Linux, it can be temporarily altered with the following commands:

# ifconfig eth0 down
# ifconfig eth0 hw ether 02:01:02:03:04:08
# ifconfig eth0 up
Change MAC address with the ifconfig command

I've read at O'Brien's blog a way to change it semi-permanently on your Raspberry Pi. Simply add the following line to the /boot/cmdline.txt file at the end:


Where we 'll replace xx: xx: xx: xx: xx: xx: xx with the new address MAC that we want.
