Just updated my HD7 to the update with internet sharing. After this, I can confirm that every time I reboot my phone, I get a new mac address. Which prevents me from connecting to my MAC-address-filtered wifi. I've done it 6 times and gotten 6 unique MAC addresses.
Does this happen to anyone else's phone? HD7 specific? or all phones with internet sharing? My internet sharing is turned off.
That's a bit strange. Normally you can't change MAC's for yourself, only spoofing is possible. If WP is really changing the MAC adress with every reboot, WP needs a valid MAC adress block licensed from IEEE, otherwise it would be a violation against IEEE.
ive also asked this question a couple of days ago right after applying the htc internet sharing update. and ive posted my question here (entry #38) and people provided good answers about it. hope this helps
