Topic: How can I change BSSID for AP

The content of this topic has been archived on 23 Apr 2018. There are no obvious gaps in this topic, but there may still be some posts missing at the end.

Hi, I just install openwrt on my ns2. I was wondering is it possible to change BSSID when the device wifi is in Access Point mode?
If it is possible, could you share the steps for doing that in Luci? or using command line on the router?

Thanks a lot

If it is Ad-hoc mode, I think you can. But I cannot find options for changing BSSID in AP mode either.

The fact is that I can add "bssid" in "wifi-device" config in "wireless" file, and I can also change the Mac address for the interface in Luci. But none of this takes any effect. Although the interface status shows a change of mac address when I change it in Luci. The signal I pick up with network stumbler still shows the old mac address.

The discussion might have continued from here.
