Setting MAC address

Hi wireless people.

I seem to be unable to set MAC address.
It seems to work and I can see my frames with right
MAC address with tcpdump. The problem is, other hosts
do not like me anymore :( I see zero incoming packets.
This happens even if I set MAC addr before bringing
iface up. I.e. no host can possibly cache stale ARP

I'd be grateful if anyone will do a quick check on their
hardware/firmware/driver combo and tell me the results.
