Question Will ISP see my router mac address? connection using 4g usb modem

I have router (dwr-118) with USB port and usb 4G modem which is connected to this router.

Please tell me if ISP will see ROUTER MAC address (or any other ROUTER numbers) or they will see only IMEI from usb 4g modem?


I found few different opinions for this issue. I hope that someone could explain it for me

Hey welcome to the forum and we are glad to have you.

I think some body will come along shortly and help you out. To be honest I haven't got a clue what your talking about. There is a lot of smart people here I am just not one of them.

I believe they track that info but it takes a court order or subpoena to release what they've tracked. Oh, and welcome to the forum!!

I am no expert in this field, but from what I have been told, YES, they will see the mac address of your router, but ONLY that one device. Everything you connect to it on YOUR side of the router "should" be hidden from them. That is the way my ISP operates. My cable modem assigns an IP address to my router, and as far as they know, that is the only device attached to my modem.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
