    Either the query isn't successful (not allowed to retrieve) or the driver
    cannot connect to the real device (wrong driver?).

    Assuming you didn't get that from a packet sniffer? You didn't say.

    If you did , it's broadcast MAC address, used in ARP requests.

    It can be for a disconnected interface like PPP/NDIS if you have a dial
    up connection.
