MAC address not stable as host ID

We enumerate the host IDs using FlcHostIdsGetIdCount and FlcHostIdsGetId and take the first MAC address, but the problem is that it changed depending on if connected to Internet by Wi-Fi and cable.

That means that if a user activates a license when connected using Wi-Fi and then changes to network cable, the host ID changes and the license is not valid any more.

Any suggestions how to solve this problem? What is better to use than the recommended MAC address?
