what difference does it make if you have the wrong MAC Version being displayed?

As Zdune stated. Also, let's say there are 2 arcs with the incorrect MAC address issue (they have the same address), only one of them will be able to connect to a WiFi hotspot.

is this needed on a CM9 ROM ? and will this work on said ROM ?

I cannot guarantee but CM9 should already have correct address.

    Here's a flashable fix if you're getting a different MAC address on ICS when compared to GB.

    It is caused by a missing symlink causing it to use a wrong firmware file.

    update-ICS-MAC-fix.zip (488 KB)

    Only tested on ROMs based on stock firmware.

    just a question.... y are there duplicates of wifi firmware in etc/firmware and /ticonnectivity?

    I would like to know which is the correct path that wifi will look for the firmware?

    Correct path is \system\etc\firmware\ti-connectivity\

    @yacloo all of them, for example to fix it I used Arc file on NeoV
    @SS4Serebii if your network checks mac address you will not be able to connect to your network and maybe something more
