The wifi/mac bug gave some problems for me. I couln't connect to couple of AP due to mac restrictions. Futhermore didn't work anymore for me. I could no longer locate my phone with the site and my data didn't synced. I asume they have some kind of mac address check.

Since there isn't any method yet to fix the OC kernel wifi/mac bug i decided to change my kernel back to the stock one. Simply flashing the kernel did not fixed my wifi.

After a bit of searching i found the right files to fix this problem.

Download the attached file in this post. It contains the kernel from Gtrab and wifi driver from Evil-Z Z-Kernel.

Please use the attached file at your own risk!

Then simply follow the instructions based on Coolbho3000:

Boot into fastboot. Using the fastboot utility, run:

fastboot flash zimage kernel-DZ-1.34.405.5


adb push bcm4329.ko /sdcard/bcm4329.ko
adb shell
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 /system
cat /sdcard/bcm4329.ko > /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko

Good luck with it

Lol, this happened to me yesterday. Glad I had the n1 first, and was used to this sort of testing prior to posting up on the forums. I looked around a bit and didn't find anything, so I figured it out. Had I known I wasn't the only one, I definitely would have put something up.

Great info though man! I'm sure this will help a LOT of people.

How do you know if your MAC address is messed up? I can't connect to either other use HTC likes app saying it could not connect to server , I checked WiFi info and it seems my MAC address is not 11:22:33:44:55:66, I'm using visionary 0.6.1 ROM

Your Wifi mac is messed up when it shows 00:11:22:33:44:55. I believe that the visionary rom doesn't has a OC kernel, but only a OC module. The module doesn't do anything with your mac address.
