Strange MAC addresses starting FA:8F:CA without OUI in your network? They are Locally Administered Addresses and likely from Google.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/07

A while ago, I write about Locally Administered Addresses: a few series of MAC addresses you can use on your local network: MAC address ranges safe for testing purposes (Locally Administered Address).

A while ago, I found ones in my network and ones in my WiFi SSID survey starting with FA:8F:CA. They did not show up in the Wireshark · OUI Lookup Tool nor their manufacturer database.

But with bit 7 turned off they start with F8:8F:CA which does show up as “F8:8F:CA Google, Inc.”

They appear to be Google devices, in my case Google ChromeCast ones, though they can also be Google Home ones.

Google does “magic” with networks, just look at a few of the links here:

No more https://www.whatsapp.com/cidr.txt

Not sure when this happened but the CIDR list is no more [WayBackhttps://www.whatsapp.com/cidr.txt:

In the past it was the place to get the CIDR so you could either block or allow WhatsApp traffic: [earlier WayBack]

It is still widely cited as way to regulate WhatsApp traffic, for instance at these places:

Time to find an automated way to get the replacement list. Maybe the below helps (via [WayBackBlock facebook messenger and whatsApp on Dlink router – Super User)

WiFi networks that support seamless handover

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/12/07

It looks like Ubiquiti UniFi can do this, can others? How good are they? Price points?

If so, please comment.

Too many WLANs…

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/09/21

32 WLANs just on the ground floor…

The top floors are even worse. Some of them are mine, so I want to find a seamless handover for that. Which I only can do if I’ve merged my various networks that connect to the WiFi devices into a big one.

That requires a good but competitively priced multi-WAN router which I’m still searching for: any hints for such a device are welcome as well as configuration tips.

Some people seem to love Ubiquity, even for seamless. Are those straightforward to configure?
