Hello!

For now have no access to my lab to check - how to change MAC address of radio of AP?
Customer is asking for make same MAC address for both radios (2,4 and 5 GHz).
What are bad consequences of this?

Thank you!

Funny customer..... but you can't change it.

I'm curious, what is the reason behind this.

You can't change the MAC - that is not possible.

Correct. AP Identifiers, such as SerialNumber, Radio and Wired MAC addresses are burnt in at Manufacturing. We don't support a procedure to alter that assignment  - attempting to do so will also likely affect the management software of those APs as in some cases the pre-provisioned MAC allocation is relevant for logic functions.
