    I just upgrade my 2009 uMBP to SL a couple days ago, everything went well. But when I try to spoof my airport mac address (for personal reasons) to "00:1b:fc:99:41:d5" with the command "sudo ifconfig en1 ether 00:1b:fc:99:41:d5" and typed my password in, no error popup. Although, when i typed in the command "ifconfig en1 | grep ether" to try to find my mac address, it still shows up as my original airport mac address. Anyone knows why this is happening?

    You need to use lladdr instead of ether, worked that way since 10.5.
