    Hi all,
    Because of ISP-issues i need to set a different MAC address for the wifi-interface when I boot up on my Macbook Pro in order to connect to the net. I'm familiar with how to change the MAC via the command line (Using 'ifconfig en0 ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx' ) but would like this to be done every time I start the Macbook Pro before it tries to connect to the AP/Router.

    So when in the startup process does OSX actually (try to) acquire a network connection? I'm figuring if I know where this happens I can make sure the MAC address is changed before it tries to connect to AP/router via some scripting?

    I know it's fairly early and a script may not load and run in time before it tries to connect.
