Hi, the first instruction in this post is to change the MAC, setting the
last digit to 0, but your log reports a MAC ended with a "4F"!

By the way, is there a limit in the number of SSIDs? Because I can only
create 4 SSIDs by card. I tried two different cards (Ubiquiti XR2 and
SR71A) and I can only create 4 SSIDs in each of these cards using hostapd
