Hello Thiago,
thank you for your inquiry.

Unfortunately, no. PRTG works at Layers 3 and 4. It has little understanding and contact with Mac Addresses. With custom sensors you would be able to interact with Mac Address as long as your script/application was able to do so.

You can find plenty of custom-script examples here:

Best Regards,
