Any chance you can update it to allow for Ethernet over Thunderbolt to be changed? The only options I get are Ethernet and Wi-FI. Thanks!
BTW, I am on Mountain Lion.

Hm, I can see and change my thunderbold Ethernet just fine. Could it be that you have more than one Ethernet interface at the same time?

What does ifconfig | grep 1500 give you in the Terminal?

For some reason, I cannot (see screenshot). I only have one ethernet as I do not have any ethernet ports on my Mac.

Here's what I get with your command:
en3: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
en0: flags=8823<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500

Here is what I get with sudo ifconfig (en3 is the TB ether):
en3: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
options=b<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_HWTAGGING>
ether 40:6c:8f:48:eb:54
inet6 fe80::426c:8fff:fe48:eb54%en3 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
inet 192.168.0.34 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255
media: autoselect (1000baseT )
status: active

Thanks for looking into it!

Ah, I didn't know the interface could be at en3. I just checked 0, 1 and 2.

Could you try it again with the latest build?

Ok, I downloaded and installed it, but unfortunately the TB ether adaptor stayed at the office. I will try on Monday and report on it. Thanks again!

Happy to report that it is showing up, and allows me to change it!
sudo ifconfig reports the new MAC Address. Oddly, the Network control panel still shows the old one...

Is that normal? I remember reading something about it taking a little while but I am not sure how long it should...

Hi! I'm glad its working for you :)

Yes, the Network control panel always shows the original hardware address, regardless of any changes made to it. To go really really sure, you might want to sniff your outgoing traffic and see which MAC address actually is used.
