    it fixes the MAC address issue for sure. I dont know about the wifi prob though
    I got my htc update with wifi sharing today (finally). been waiting.
    however, MAC definitely changes after i restart the phone,
    fortunately i can connect to my router with no problem so far.

    are you saying we should get yet another update again to fix mac changing?

    My problem is that it simply won't see the network, won't pick it up. Even though I asked really nicely -_-
    Update: My issue was fixed with 7740 update, just fyi

    Two days ago I was notified about an "HTC update" , what is this update for? Does it resolve the problem about the MAC address constantly changing?

    in my case, it doesnt fix it.
    I got the htc update only several days ago too. but I already got 7740 a month ago.

    Now everytime I restart the phone MAC changes.

    seems to be that the MAC address only changes if you pull the battery. If you just reboot the phone, the MAC stays the same. (thats what I'm seeing)

    Over the past week I've been dealing with multiple HD7's. T-Mobile sent me a replacement one and I noticed a few things. The replacement one had a much better screen than my original, the colors were way more vibrant. This one didnt have the MAC address issue. Unfortunately, the refurb was not put together well (the back cover didnt fit right) so I returned it and got another one. This one (refurb) also had a great looking screen and no MAC address issues. Unfortunately, this one had a bad speaker! So i returned it. So my 3rd HD7 comes in and the screen looks like my original (kinda dull) and now the MAC address issue is back. Obviously the screen is not causing the MAC issues but maybe its a hardware version that is different between them.

    Although it's years since this forum started I read the posts to see if I could solve my problem. The solution that a member suggested, deleting the WiFi network and adding it again, worked for me.
