In this menu, you can change the MAC address of the EZhotspot Extender.

During a first initiation or after a Hard Factory Reset, the EZhotspot Extender generates a random and unique MAC address to be used as the operational value to be identified when the EZhotspot Extender  repeat to another wireless network. This value is different from the actual hardware value as compared to the label underneath the casing of the EZhotspot Extender.


The top option indicates the current operational MAC address value.

  

 


Note:
V5 - Only on firmware version 5.77 or higher
V4 - Only on firmware version 4.62 or higher

 This option allows you to clone a MAC address of an existing connected client to the Ezhotspot Extender. When you confirm, this value will become the operational value

On some public hotspots, the internet voucher is locked to the first device logged in. If you have logged in to a hotspot on your iPad, the internet voucher cannot be used on the Ezhotspot Extender or other devices. You can use this menu to clone the MAC address of thr iPad.

Note 1: The new MAC address value will only be operational in a new connection. If you are currently connected, you should disconnect and re-connect again for the new value to be effective.

Note 2: You must disconnect the original iPad from the hotspot. Go to the iPad's Wireless Settings. Click on the blue info icon and click on Forget This Network. When 2 connected devices (Ezhotspot & iPad)  with same MAC addresses are connected to the same hotspot, the network will become unresponsive, even it shows joined and received an IP address from the remote network.
