    Default Raspberry Pi 3+ Wicked Random MAC Address for WiFi interface

    Hi,

    Is there a way under Wicked to disable randomization of the Mac Address for WiFi?

    Thanks!

    That's a Rpi(all versions) "feature" people have posted about since forever.

    Periodically people post about ways to set a fixed MAC or IP address

    Some things that should work...
    1. You should become at least a little familiar with Uboot which is the boot utility all non Raspbian (now aka Raspberry OS I think) uses and its super powerful cmdline.txt which can do all sorts of magical things on boot.

    2. The following has a number of possible solutions. The one I find most interesting is to set your desired IP address in your network interface and bypass the MAC address issue altogether but that may have its own issue, ie no centralized management of this device's IP address.
