The NetStumbler tool (www.netstumbler.com) appears to have a fairly good
MAC to vendor mapping, and may have helpful information. Their database
shows a full range of MAC addreses, which could give you a starting point.
OTOH, it's easy enough to change MAC addresses - you'd probably be better
off pulling the information from your access point - the lucent gear
certainly allows you to do so, but I can't speak for any others.
