MAC Spoofing failing in manjaro
Hi everyone,
I'm trying to spoof my PBP's wifi card mac address with different ways, and all are failing for the moment...
Trying with GUI network manager results in PBP to hang.
Trying with "ip link set dev wlan0 address xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" i get the following error "RTNETLINK Answers: Invalid exchange".
Trying with macchanger, i get the error "[ERROR] Could not change MAC: interface up or insufficient permissions: Invalid exchange".
Trying with "ifconfig wlan0 hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" i get the error "SIOCSIFHWADDR: Invalid exchange".

I did put the wlan0 in a down state before trying to change its mac address.
I can't figure out why this isn't working. Could it be a hardware limitation problem (wireless card not able to spoof mac addresses)?
I'm running on stock manjaro.
