Hi Rafi,

Thanks for the question. Yes on both counts - that’s its function, and each does have a unique MAC address (which is also printed on the bottom side of each unit as part of the manufacturing process)

Thanks!

There’s a US federal law that each Ethernet device must have its (unique) MAC address printed on a label somewhere on the outside of the device.

You can find all the MAC addresses of every LAN connection, both wired and wireless, by logging into your router’s configuration web page (usually defaults to 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0) and get the router to list out all the current LAN connections. This is because, for improved security purposes, most routers can be configured to allow LAN devices to connect only if their MAC is configured within the router rather than to simply allow everyone to connect.
