How to restore default mac-addresses of MikroTik interfaces

Recently, I needed to copy the settings of one MikroTik router to another, and after I saved the settings to a file and uploaded them to the second one, I noticed that the mac addresses were also copied.
Therefore, I had to reset them to standard.
First, let’s see what interface numbers are (I have ether1 under 0, ether2 – 1, etc.):
  • interface ethernet print
And reset their mac addresses:
  • interface ethernet reset-mac-address 0
  • interface ethernet reset-mac-address 1
  • interface ethernet reset-mac-address 2
  • interface ethernet reset-mac-address 3
  • interface ethernet reset-mac-address 4
If you need to reset the mac of the wireless interface, then save the wireless settings to a file:
  • interface wireless export file wifibackup
See what wireless interfaces there are (I have one at number 0):
  • interface wireless print
Reset all settings including mac-address:
interface wireless reset-configuration 0Let’s restore the settings from the previously saved file (the mac-address will remain the default in this case):
  • import wifibackup.rsc
