MAC address on X20 keeps changing


#1

The MAC address of my new X20 boards keeps changing on reboot or even when disconnecting and reconnecting WiFi. For example, yesterday it was 00:08:22:74:f3:06, while today it’s 00:08:22:f6:e5:fb (i.e. the second half is different). As a consequence, I cannot enable remote access to my boards (IP address reservation + port forwarding). Please help!

I dont know much about the X20 - what wifi driver does it use?- but we had some work-arounds for the db410c which had the same issue until the MAC address was programmed by the firmware in the DT.

have a look and maybe follow Qualcomm’s recommendation.
