    Question Changing MAC using ifconfig causes connectivity lost


    Hi,
    I am using Suse 10 sp2. By running ifconfig I am changing the mac address. Everything is happening successfully, but this is adapter losing the network connection. Even when I give a static IP. I am not able to ping any other IP.

    I've seen this problem on many other forums but haven't found any concrete solution yet. Any suggestions ?

    Thanks
    Abhinav

    I think maybe your arp is not change. you can try to "arp -an " to see your current arp table and "arp -d " to remove the wrong arp table
