HI, I got my Banana Pi 2 days ago. When I first read this post, I was thinking "what a bunch of armatures". However after digging into this, it seems what everything is done correctly now:|
The MAC-address is set by the factory in UBOOT as "ethaddr=02:d0:05:40:da:5b" (hopefully different for every device). The new installations from 2014-07-02 uses that information to set the MAC-address. So everything should be fine now.
However I could not check if the MAC-address was uniq, and I see that the MAC-address is in the range of locally administered addresses.... What a bunch of armatures...
