    I'm unaware if this topic has been brought forth. If it has I do apologize.

    Comodo system information has shown under adapters; 5 Eset Perosnal Firewall Miniport(s)
    ("3" of which share the same information!)
    Adapter type: Ethernet 802.3
    Description:Eset Personal Firewall Miniport
    MAC Address:------------ Which I have but don't recognize.
    Manufacturer:Eset
    Service name:Epfwndis
    System Name:blank-pc
    Of the remaining 2, MAC & Adapter type are blank the other is the MAC Address of my Laptop.
    Is it necessary to have 3 identical Mini port(s)?
    Why would one's adapter&MAC not be able to be identified?
    Can/Do I need to close the port(s) that I don't recognize?

    This is just a guess but I think that that "Miniport" is a driver used for ESET's firewall. And since its not a physical device, it doesn't have a MAC address.

    The MAC address has changed since I've come home.The last 32bits are the same and the begining set are different.

    The only one I recognize is the address of my laptop.The other address isn't the MAC of my mifi device.

    At the library and the address has changed again from what it was yesturday at the same location.
    the last 32bits of the MAC are the same.
