Help! Fix same MAC address on two Xperia L's!
In a real fix here! Me & my roomie are both having Xperia L. THe problem is that both have the same MAC ID shown in wifi-advanced menu,(ending in :FF I think)
This causes the router to conflict in assigning IPs and we face random drops & dead connections in wifi & manually reconnect to the network again & again after a few minutes the same occurs.
Both phones are rooted. He is on 4.1.2+some custom kernel & me on 4.2.2 + thunderzap latest.
I have already tried mac spoofer apps on play market but they always return -authentication error in wifi status after changing & no success on forgetting the wifi network & so on..thus need to change back to original MAC.
Is there a way to edit the MAC id in one of the system files - I know MAC is hardware coded but can I make some changes,maybe something 'can' be changed in the kernel or so? Please help!
If you think the reply was helpful then the Thanks button is waiting!
