iPhone BSSID changes every time I turn on Hotspot

Post by fdnyfish » Sun Nov 10, 2019 4:12 pm

You can see what I have saved in SSID 1 (KB2MXV), and take notice when I do a scan for wireless networks, KB2MXV shows with a different BSSID.

How do I stop this from happening?

What BSSID should it have?
You don't have to use BSSIDs, as setting a BSSID is only needed if there are several access points on the network with the same SSID, and you want your OS2 stick to only one of the access points. The other use case is to connect to an access point which has no SSID.
