    I need to find a web site that can display the MAC address that
    websites see from my PC. I am testing the random wan port MAC address
    on my router and want to make sure it actually works as advertised.
    I've looked but can't find one that shows me this data and I know
    websites are indentifying users via the MAC address and not just the
    IP address. I consider this an invasion of my privacy so want to deep
    six the fuckers from seeing my real MAC address.

    How do you "know websites are indentifying users via the MAC address and not just the IP
    address." ?

    Please provide substantiatiing information.

    Let's just say I know. Not saying all do but I have concrete evidence
    that some do. Anyway, I found out how to check my visible MAC address
    against the MAC address I set with the random option in my Router. I
    used a 3rd party firewall and the MAC address it shows is the same one
    I set in my Router. That puts a stop to invasion of my privacy via the
    Mac address. Job done.

    Actually, I was wrong and the firewall is showing the physical MAC
    address of the router and not the WAN port MAC address I can change
    randomly in the router settings. I need to find which MAC address some
    of these websites can see. If it is just the WAN port MAC address
    then that is fine because one can change that but if they can see the
    physical MAC address then I see concerns with privacy issues.

    Im not up to doing anything illegal so don't ask me questions that
    don't concern you. If you can help great but all I see so far is one
    nosey person so don't hold out much hope here.
