Spoofing MAC Addresses

I developed this bash script for my MacBook Air to simply the process of getting devices without a keyboard and mouse authenticated to a wireless network that requires a userid and password, which in my case were an Amazon Echo and Amazon Fire TV Cube that we wanted connected at our rental condo.  

This was accomplished by setting the MacBook Air’s MAC address to the MAC address of each of the Amazon devices, which allowed the MacBook Air to complete the authentication process.

-------------
#!/usr/bin/env bash
#
# This script is used to temporarily change the Macbook Air's MAC address
# to the Amazon Echo 3 and the Amazon Fire TV Cube.  This will allow the
# Macbook Air to authenticate to networks that require a userid and password
# by spoofing their MAC addresses.

  echo Press enter when completed.

  echo Changing the MAC address to the Amazon Echo 3.  Enter the sudo password if prompted.

  sudo ifconfig en0 ether 08:84:9D:17:F3:B7

  echo Now spoofing the Amazon Echo 3 MAC address.  Connect and authorize to the wireless network, then press Enter.
