The device shows mac address of 5E:CF:7F:xx:xx:xx
My router WIFI connection log shows 5C:CF:7F:xx:xx:xx

Displaying the incorrect mac address can cause the device to not connect if anyone wants to setup mac address filtering on their router which I have done on mine for increased security.

It appears that the GMC-600+ incorrectly reads WIFI module mac address OR some of the mac address data is hard coded and the rest pulled from WIFI module.
I did a little web search for 5C:CF:7F mac address and it belongs to Espressif Systems which is a WIFI and Bluetooth chipset manufacturer in Shanghai.
Did the same search for 5E:CF:7F and it came up as unknown. Just to refresh your mind this is the mac address displayed by my GMC-600+.

That is what I thought but my router's mac address definitely does not look any way like this one.

***AP mac address

Access point, it can also be an access point but for this unit, it's configured as a client/station.

What is an AP address?

Hi Sonicmixmaster, thanks for noticing this issue. It appears to be software bug, that address is apparently an AP address not
station address. You can email customer support for firmware update.
