If it was the technique described in that linked thread, coopster's routers would be positioned in the new country.
a random client identifier, which is assigned by Google, that expires every 2 weeks.
perhaps it simply hasn't expired and updated yet?
MAC address seems the most logical choice.
but google never sees your routers MAC, it only sees the MAC and IP to the ISP's equipment. ((correction it never sees your ISP's MAC))
But maybe routers now have a little "extra" that "they" don't tell us about ?
this would be no good....no reason to be forwarding on MAC addresses.
----> actually after dusting my IP books off... data Link frames do not cross the boundaries of a local network..
so there is no way his LAN routers MAC is being passed to the internet, non-routable info.
