How to change your MAC Address in Linux

Written by Ian Carnaghan · 13 sec read >

NOTE: In this example we will change the MAC address for the eth0 interface

  1. Open your Command Line Interface
  2. Now we are going to shutdown the eth0 Interface using the command below
    ifconfig eth0 down
  3. Now we change the Hardware Address for the eth0 interface
    ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:1d:72:dd:00:6f
  4. Now we activate the eth0 interface again
    ifconfig eth0 up
