sudo ifconfig wlan0 hw ether
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
now this have changed to

when i reconect its the old hw adress agen, even ive delete the old internet conection for the ruter.

now ive ben trying to go into the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and its the old adress, and when i then change the adress there agen to i get this message active conection failed, so then i restarted my computer.

then i go to terminal ifconfig and yeay! now we got the new conection! the wlan1 actually witch have ben added with the same old fantastic adress.

so i looked up /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules agen, and there where added the wlan1,

so something must have ben asked the device: is this your hw adress? no its........
ah okey il make a wlan1 with that adress.

so i tryed to maby find the file that ask for the adress and maby say this is the dault, but turnd up its really hard when you dont know how to program, or even know how linux where buildt up, this will probably take years, so i thought that, why not ask the community, so here i am, so any one have any idea's? linux 14.04 LTS
