Mac-address

Hello,

I found a mac-address on my router and after some research, I found tha was generate by ma Cisco 4948. (00:1A:5D) But if I look for the manufacturer, I found this:

Mobinnova Corp.

I have no material from this manufacturer.

Is it possible that some manufacturer sell some mac-address range to other manufacturer?

Thanks,

Re: Mac-address

Some manufacturers use hardware made by other manufacturers in their products.

You can have a Sony laptop with a NIC made by some other company.

I agree with Victor. It's just not financially viable for a PC/Laptop manufacturer to create a business to manufacture NICs. Alot of the big manufacturer just purchase bulk stock from NIC manufacturers on a case-to-case basis. It's like a bidding war. Intel might offer 10k units for 0.95 while Broadcom will offer 11k for 0.95.

That's why you'll see some models have different chipsets.
