MAC changing to wired card


#1

On the https://www.whonix.org/wiki/MAC_Address#Auto-connect_Risk page, does booting also contain the meaning of resuming from suspend? And is it only effect on Wireless network card?


#2

MAC addresses can be leaked by the adapter firmware before the system had a chance to run the MAC spoofer.


#3

Before putting the computer to suspended state, the MAC address has been changed, the power looks on during suspended, does this cause the manufactor MAC Address leaking too?


#4

I have no idea who made your wifi adapter or what bugs there could possibly be in there that would defeat MAC spoofing. If I really wanted to conceal my MAC address I’d use burner wifi sticks.


#5

only a wired card is in using for connecting to router with a wire.


#6

Assume the worst and plan accordingly.
