- MAC is the lower sublayer and performs flow control and multiplexing of the physical hardware
- LLC is the higher sublayer and performs flow control and multiplexing for the link layer
MAC address: DC:39:6F:xx:xx:xx
The first 3 hex numbers (
DC:39:6F) are the 24-bit OUI and identify the Company which registered the MAC-Address block.
xx:xx:xx is used to anonymize the address here. This is done everywhere in this Wiki - for privacy reasons.
Most MAC addresses used in FRITZ!OS are stored in the Bootloader-Environment using OUI registered by AVM.
They are assigned in-factory and stored in the Config section of the ADAM2 or EVA bootloader.
This means that they cant't be changed persistent.
Have a look at the Network-Interfaces to see where these addresses are used.
