NETGear GS310TP MAC Address

Using the GS310TP, I often see two MAC addresses originating from the switch. One ending in 7C, and one ending in 7E.

I see the 7C MAC Address labelled on the back of the device, but not the 7E MAC address. Would just like to check if this is intended?

Re: NETGear GS310TP MAC Address

It’s work as design.

For smart switches, we will allocate 4 MACs to them.

 

Base MAC: Management.

Base + 1: L3 protocol use.

Base + 2: L2 protocol use.

Base + 3: Reserve for future use if necessary.

Re: NETGear GS310TP MAC Address

Based on the product specs and features implemented, this reads wrong to me. @YeZ something to check for the switch engineering.
