Disclaimer: new to Linux, using Raspbian light on a Pi 3. SSH access.

I'm trying to look for the mac address using ping / arp:


It returns:

Address                  HWtype  HWaddress           Flags Mask            Iface              ether   02:0f:b5:ed:9e:5c   C                     eth0

The HWaddress is different from the mac address I see in Windows:

arp -a

Internet Address      Physical Address      Type           c0-ee-fb-ed-9e-5c     dynamic

How can I get my Pi to return the same Mac? Note: looks like the 'vendor' part is different.

  • What do you see if you type ifconfig on your raspberry pi terminal? Raspberry Pi eth0 always has a vendor code of HWaddr b8:27:eb:xx:xx:xx – hcheung Apr 12 '17 at 10:01
  • No idea why, but I'm getting the right IP now. – Kees C. Bakker Apr 18 '17 at 9:07
