Re: What does a network having all identical MAC addresses mean?



they might be using some kind of a virtual interface. Can you pls post the mac
address to check if it is a known one?
Can you be more specific about how the wifi hot spot works (vpn requered,
etc?)

those 2 sites can help you find out to whom the macs are assigned:

I was in a free wi-fi hotspot the other day and just for kicks ran an
NMAP scan to see how many people were logged on.

I noticed something peculiar though. Every IP address had identical MAC
addresses. Is this some security thing the hotspot had going on? Or is
it some kind of devious thing going on by one of the other customers in
the hotspot?
