iOS 14 is now changing the MAC address (network adapter ID) when connecting to a (new) WLAN (primarily for hotspot WLANs, so they can not identify you've already been connected in the past).

eBlocker uses the MAC address to identify each device in a LAN to set all device depended settings. If iOS 14 changes the MAC address, eBlocker can not identify the device, but assumes it's a newly connected device. This "new device" gets the standard settings of course (all previous device configurations can not be applied).

There is an easy fix: On your iOS 14 device go to Settings>Wi-Fi. Choose your home network. Disable the option "Private Address" (see screenshot attached).

BTW: This will also help that your iOS 14 devices always get the same IP-address if using other (non eBlocker) DHCP servers (ie. your FritzBox).

THX!

@pio78 Can you provide info how to configure Android to not change the MAC for the local LAN?

(I'm in a Google free zone - so Android is not in reach... 😉)

THX!

Disable MAC Address Randomization in Android 10
  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Select Network and Internet.
  3. Select WiFi.
  4. Connect to the wireless network
  5. Tap the gear icon next to the current wifi connection.
  6. Select Advanced.
  7. Select Privacy.
  8. Select "Use device MAC"

 

Disable MAC Address Randomization in Android 9

"In Android 9, a developer option can be enabled (it is disabled by default) to cause the device to use a randomized MAC address when connecting to a Wi-Fi network. A different randomized MAC address is used per SSID."
