  • Which client mode are you using? What protocol are you using (802.11, NV2 etc)? – MerlinTheMagic Aug 15 '17 at 11:15

It depend on the router configuration :

  • if the router configured to bridge the traffic between the router client interface and the AP interface the AP will receive the whole clients MAC address
  • but if the router configured as normal L3 router which is the most case , the AP will see the router interface MAC address where it is connected
