Although Mac Address is quite different because IP is provided by the ISP provided while the mac is written on the device hardware.

This address is used to diagnose the internet connection or troubleshoot the WiFi network. Even though this can be used to block someone’s device from the router. There could be different usage for this depending on the situation people want it like either diagnosing the internet or simply blocking a device from the router.
