Nop. I can connect to my access point using windows and changed mac address, but with the same changed mac i cant connect to ap using ubuntu.

Maybe someone could check if they can connect to ap with changed mac.

Just tried here and it works perfectly.
I used 'macchanger' to change the mac.

Anyway, why do you need to change the mac if there is no mac filters on your ap?
