    Every network-device has a unique MAC-adress.

    It's the "real" thing: your IP-address may vary from session to session, but the MAC-address of your device will always stay the same.

    In the ISO Reference Model for OSI the IP-address is part of the 3rd layer, the "network" layer, whereas the MAC-address belongs to the 2nd layer, the "data-link" layer.

    lol j4p, youre right, but i think that went over their heads....

    think of it as your PSP's unique ID....each device that connects to the internet has one, but its always unique for the device.

    So i write a program and hard code it to look for a certain MAC address....the program will only run on that PSP.

    Ahh, the OSI model.
