I was looking through the network settings on my 2015MBP and I came across this.
What is the microcontroler? It looks like it can be used to make telephone calls from the Mac as shown here
What is this, how does it work and how do you set it up?
Here is the output from the commands that
network services output
(1) Microcontroller (Hardware Port: Modem (usbmodem1422), Device: usbmodem1422) (2) Bluetooth DUN (Hardware Port: Bluetooth DUN, Device: Bluetooth-Modem) (3) Wi-Fi (Hardware Port: Wi-Fi, Device: en0) (4) Bluetooth PAN (Hardware Port: Bluetooth PAN, Device: en3) (5) Thunderbolt Bridge (Hardware Port: Thunderbolt Bridge, Device: bridge0)

I have changed the MAC addresses to
00:00:00:00:00:00 for security reasons since they can be spoofed.
If it helps I remembered I created an Wi-Fi hotspot on my Mac by clicking on the Wi-Fi menu and clicking on
The 'grep' command did not display anything. (used
usbmodem1422 as the argument.
