i210 same MAC on different VLANs

Hi.

Is it possible to change mac address on virtual NICs associated with VLANs created under Windows 10 using last Intel drivers for i210?

I cant find the way to do it.

Thanks.

Hi grinux, 

 

Thank you for the post. I need to check on this, are you using an onboard I210 or I210-T1 standalone network adapter?

 

 

thanks,

Hi Grigory,

 

 

Thank you for the reply. Two things I need to check, but before that I need to inform you Currently VLAN is not supported in Windows 10, you may refer to the driver download site below for reference:

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25016/Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-Windows-10?product=...

 

 

"Creating Intel ANS teams and VLANs on Windows® 10 is currently not supported. As a result, when created, teams and VLANs do not pass traffic. We expect that ANS will be supported on Windows 10 client in a future release."

 

 

1) Just want to double check if you have configure the VLAN via any workaround already?

 

2) Or just want to know if possible to change the MAC address in VLAN in Windows 10 in case the VLAN is supported in Windows 10.

 

 

Thanks,

Hi Grigory,

 

 

Good day. Further checking the available option to change the mac is through the main network adapter , not on the VLAN adapter.

Hi.

I dont clearly understand. I need different MACs on different VLANs. Is it possible?

If i change MAC on main adapter it changed on VLANs too of course.

Hi

In my application i need four VLANs with different MACs.

Realtek RTL8111 can do that for me easily.

Why i need different MACs.

In my application i210 connected to L2 switch back to back. Four physical ports routed from L2 switch to four RJ45 LAN connectors. VLANs using to help L2 switch to identify and isolate traffic from 4 virtual adapters in Windows and forward it correctly to each physical RJ45 ports. Also after forwarding L2 switch untag all the packets and all packets on four physical pors presents without VLANs. But with same mac addresses in my case.

All of components: cpu(E3845), i210 and L2 switch located on single PCB.

As mentioned above realtek allow me to get untaged packets with different macs on each physical connetor respectively because realtek allow to set any MAC address on their VLAN associated virtual adapters.

Hi Grigory,

Hi Grigory,

 

 

Good day. Just to double check how are you setting the MAC address for the REALTEK adapters?

 

 

As I210 is an onboard NIC. Have you tried drivers supplied by the OEM?

 

There might be features in the OEM drivers to enable, have you tried contacted the OEM?

 

 

There are other tools that can change MAC address, you can try search online. Moreover, there is also a way to change this in the registry that can be obtained with a quick google search.

 

e.g. in the registry path below:

 

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318}

 

 

Locate the key that contains "Intel(R) Advanced Network Sevices Virtual Adapter", inside that key there's "NetworkAddress, Type = REG_SZ" for the mac address.

 

 

Please feel free to update me.

Hi.

My company is OEM.

I tried drivers from public intel site and also from the https://businessportal.intel.com https://businessportal.intel.com. Result is the same.

I aslo tried registry trick you described above before post this topic and its not working. VLANs MACs is always same as root adapter MAC.

Hi Grigory,

 

 

Good day. Understand your company is the OEM, can you double check with system manufacturer for customized driver that may enable this capability.
