Ok if I read e2p I get this:

Code: Select all

ra0       e2p:
[0x0004]:0x0834  
ra0       e2p:
[0x0005]:0x0408  
ra0       e2p:
[0x0006]:0x3104  
ra0       e2p:
[0x0007]:0x0031  
ra0       e2p:
[0x0008]:0x9385  
ra0       e2p:
[0x0009]:0x0093  
which of these do I need to change to change mac ?

Why did you read it byte to byte? e2p returns word (double byte)

You have to use:
iwpriv ra0 e2p 04
iwpriv ra0 e2p 06
iwpriv ra0 e2p 08

and check if it confirms with your MAC address in byte order. Example:
if your mac is: 34-08-04-31-85-93 you will get:

iwpriv ra0 e2p 04 -> 0x0834
iwpriv ra0 e2p 06 -> 0x3104
iwpriv ra0 e2p 08 -> 0x9385

If it is eguals your original MAC address use
iwpriv ra0 e2p 04=7CE4
iwpriv ra0 e2p 06=31F9

So the first 3 bytes will change to Samsung prefix. Dunno why you want to do that, i think that samsung does not check MAC address yet.

Please show output:
iwpriv ra0 e2p 04

iwpriv ra0 e2p 04=0x7CE4

iwpriv ra0 e2p 04

I want to see what was before e2p and what happend after it.

I write from my memory becouse i'm at work. I can VNC to VM but dongle is not atached to host.

you do all ok, maybe your cards bios is somehow shadowed in ram? Or it has write protected eeprom? It can be a matter of drivers too.

What card (model, revision, pid, vid) are you trying to flash? It could be a hint what not to buy for others.

It is a dlink dwa 140 rev b2

at first it changed the mac address values but seems locked or write protected now
mac address is partly changed but not correct values
I already reinsmodded the driver

ok just tried to change pid /vid
this is also written different in eeprom from what I typed. change back isn`t working.
really strange behaviour.
maybe eeprom is bad or driver is corrupted

IMHO driver is corrupted. Had simmilar problem on live ubuntu machine, on VM with xbunut worked like a charm. 2011_0719 driver worked ok. On real machine some other driver didn't change my pid and vid but made whole card dead. Maybe i will upload VM on net so you can try to with it.
