HiSense Sero 7 Pro - How can I make the tablet MAC address "fixed", not variable?

Since the last android update, if I shut off the wi-fi scanner and turn it back on, the last six characters of the tablet MAC address reset to a new address. To maintain my home security, I have to edit my router for permitted devices. This is getting to be a pain. Anybody know a fix for this, short of sending the tablet back to HiSense?​

MAC addresses are permanent by design as they're burned into the firmware of the WiFi. Are you sure you're not instead asking about the IP address, which can change?
