two equal dreamboxes with same MAC - 20-June-2009, 01:53

Hi everyone,

I have two dreamboxes connected to the network. Initially this gives a lot of problems caused by equal MAC addresses of both dreamboxes, which caused a network conflict.

Fortunately this could be solved by a shell script in the start-up which changes the MAC address of one dreambox.

Regards memeek

you need to create a file called init , place it in /var/etc/ and add the following:
ifconfig eth0 down; ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:09:23:41:xx:xx; ifconfig eth0 up

you can change to any mac address you xan replacing the last xx:xx

alternatively you could permanently change the mac address of one of your
dreamboxes using opala's method, which i have used to change 2 eagle boxes
to use original dreambox style mac addresses.
