    [Solved] Asus P5GC-MX onboard LAN bogus MAC?

    I have a P5GC-MX that has ED-0B-00-00-E0-00 as MAC address.

    The problem is that on some routers it works, but on others it doesn't.

    Probably same problem:

    Glued on the board there's a MAC address stick containing different numbers. This information is stored inside BIOS I think. Can it be modified?

    Thanks, Tito. At least resort I will do that. I'm still looking for a proper fix (aka BIOS modding) if viable.

    Didn't work.

    I'll change MAC in the driver settings. Too much time lost with this thing...

    CodeRush's tool only works for newer Asus EFIs; not for older legacy AMI bioses.

    I believe you need some kind of Atheros EEPROM Tool (similar to Intel) but I can only find tools for Atheros WLAN cards.

    The two Atheros tools I'm aware of are ATEPROM and ATSMI. They should let you change the mac address.
