Hello Aironet Gurus:
I have a wierd mac address problem with a couple of AP 340s AFTER I upgraded
The one AP I'll use in this example has an IP address of 10.2.70.19. Below
is an except from our layer three switch SNMP table when grepping for
Please notice that the mac address of IP address 10.2.70.19 according to the
switch is 00-40-96-35-51-8d
This is all find an dandy EXCEPT the label on the back of the AP says it is
00-40-96-33-31-40. Also in the "express setup" the mac matches the label
address, not what the router thinks it is. I can not find this mac address
in any of our network equipment's arp tables.
One last question: does the access point take the mac address of the access
point or the mac address of the onboard ethernet card or the mac address of
the radio card? Any help with these mismatched macs would be greatly
at.atTable.atEntry.atIfIndex.322.214.171.124.70.19 = 332
at.atTable.atEntry.atPhysAddress.3126.96.36.199.70.19 = Hex: 00 40 96 35 51 8D
at.atTable.atEntry.atNetAddress.3188.8.131.52.70.19 = IpAddress: 10.2.70.19
9 = 0:40:96:35:51:8d
= IpAddress: 10.2.70.19

There are two MAC addresses in the AP. The one it primarily uses is the one
on the motherboard. Which should also be the one on the label and the box.
This is the MAC of the ethernet interface.
The radio card also has a MAC address, but by default it adopts the etherne=
If you choose to split the interfaces (like for setting up a "hotstandby AP=
you will see both MAC addresses displayed on the main status page.
You split the interfaces by going to the "Radio Identification" page off of
the main setup page - and select "No" for "Adopt Primary Port Identity?".
When it comes back up after rebooting - it will display both MAC addresses.
