Is it possible to find out the MAC Addr of AP the device used to connect the network? I can get the MAC address and IP address of the device(maybe notebook or smartphone), and I have to check the MAC address of the wifi device. (I'm not saying about the gateway address) There are lots of AP with same ESSID and different channels here, and I want to get which AP was used.
If you want to know which AP your computer is connected to. You have two options.
2 . Use built-in netsh command in Windows 7 or Windows 8 To do so, go to your Command Prompt that you can find in Accessories or click on the Windows button (Windows 7) or press Windows button on keyboard (Windows 8), and then type cmd
Command Prompt will be listed in front of you. Click on it and type the following command line
netsh wlan show interfaces
What you need to focus on is BSSID value. This is the MAC address of the AP that you are being connected. Now you can go check the MAC address on the APs’ information label to find out which one you are connected to.

Use below steps on User's Windows Machine as requested by member
The BSSID (basic service set identifier) is what you seek. Numerous wireless troubleshooting apps (e.g., Wifi Analyzer) will show the associated BSSID. Under Windows, you could locate the BSSID with:
netsh wlan show networks mode=Bssid
We will get below output. Copy Mac address from output & use coffer website to find which Access point vendor like how I used which can be seen in below coffer snap.
