What is a WMAC address

What is the difference between these two MAC addresses? I'm using the WMAC address as the ID for the item (IP cam). If and when do I use the MAC address. On all the other devices I have I've only seen the MAC address and have used that as identifying the device.

I would think that WMAC is wireless MAC address.

The WMAC address is registered to Proware wireless technologhy.
The MAC address is registered to ASTAK security cameras.

PJ,

Apparently you are correct. In most cases the Ethernet (hard wired) MAC address is printed or labeled on the device and the wireless (wMAC) must be found via software. Didn't occur to me until you said wireless. Thanks.
