How to guide: Change mac address of DreamBox Dm800 & Dm800HD

A guide on how to change the mac address of the Dream Multimedia Dreambox Dm800 & Dm800HD series of Linux set top box satellite receivers.

Dont want a cable or satellite TV subscription?

Click above :)

I do not know useful to someone or not, but still …

Open the file / etc / network / interfaces

# Do NOT change manually!

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.2
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1

and appends the string

pre-up ifconfig eth0 HW ether 00:00:00:00:00:00

where instead of 00:00:00:00:00:00 write the desired MAC address.

auto lo

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.1
pre-up ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:00:00:00:00:00

Restarting the Dream and we get a new MAC address
