Can you tell if a Dell device is wireless or wired by the OUI in the mac?

From a network perspective, if you see a device in the arp table on a router, can you tell if it's wireless based on the mac address? Does Dell use different OUIs on wireless network adapters than wired?

Hi, thanks for choosing Dell. We cannot identify the MAC address whether it is wired or wireless device based on MAC address since it is a just Hardware address only for a network device and no such feature in OUI as well.
