Randomize BSSID on startup

Inspired by this article (research paper) which highlights the possible privacy implications.

I'm aware that in some form or other, this has been discussed multiple times already (1 2 3) but I wonder if the time has come to make something a bit more official and integrated in the base images, possibly even enabled by default.


Please use solution in those discussed threads -> go to access point definition / Advanced tab in lower part / set mac address to random. Rinse, repeat for each access point.

Interesting. Somehow, I had only noticed the scripts, not the LuCI option. Thanks!

However, given that research, I'm still wondering if making it the default would make sense.
