I've been given a longer that normal mac address to fix an ip to. (i.e  aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff:gg:aa) rather than the normal 6 groups, it has 8. The router wont accept that length. I'm guessing this is an IP6 thing? Would the hardware also likely to have a 6 group MAC as well? Basically I've been asked to add a fixed IP on to a IP4 router.

Thanks
