Setting up unique MAC addresses in different devices I210 during production

Hi Intel team,

We are using "WGI210AT S LJXR" chipset on our custom board. Right now, we are getting the same MAC addresses "00:A0:C9:00:00:00" across every device.  

1) Please advise on how we can set custom and globally unique MAC addresses while doing the production of our device?

2) Do we require to buy them or the individual chipsets provided already have different unique MAC addresses (for production purposes)?
 
3) Is intel team provide such chipsets which have different MAC addresses flashed into the chipset?

 

Regards.

Hi @CarlosAM_INTEL ,

Thank you for your reply. (I am sorry for the late reply on this thread.)

I am not able to access the https://cdrdv2.intel.com/v1/dl/getContent/335346. I have raised the request as per your suggestion. However, I want to clarify here that I am able to make Ethernet adapter work, however, the MAC addresses are the same access devices, I wanted to have some solution so it can be programmed uniquely. 

Regards.

Hi @CarlosAM_INTEL ,

I am still not clear about those points. I understood the following points from the FAQs document.

2.25 => EEUPDATE requires to be powered off and I understood that it is empty for the first time.

2.29 => GMII interface is not exposed in I210. 

2.30 => In SGMII I210 is always MAC and never PHY.

2.37 => Details of the I210 related product details.

However, does Intel provide support for already pre-flashed unique MAC addresses or can we buy them from intel?  Please provide the cost of such support is being provided by the intel team.

Regards.
