    MAC address changes?

    I noticed that my MAC address is different by 2 digits (the last 2) compared to the last time I checked it.

    Is this normal?

    Hey Hey,

    Your MAC Address won't just change on it's own... Not if you're using the same network card. MAC Addresses (Layer 2 Physical Addresses) are "burned in" to the network card. There are ways of changing them through software, but if you haven't gone through and changed ti there should be no change.

    What was the 'previous' adressed and what is the 'new' one?

    Peace
