What is a MAC Address?

The MAC (Media Access Control) address uniquely identifies your device on the network. The MAC address is 12 characters long, with a colon between every pair of numbers or letters. Here is an example MAC address: 01:DF:3E:58:9A:F1



Find MAC Address - Initial Device Setup

When you turn the device on it will show a loading screen with the Enplug logo. After 30 to 60 seconds, another screen will load that says "Press space to connect me to the Internet." The Ethernet and Wifi MAC addresses will be listed.

Note: If the MAC Address for the WiFi adapter is not shown for the Legacy Enplug devices, it is most likely because the antenna is not plugged in. It will have to be attached to the device in order for you to get the address. Follow this guide for those setup steps.


Once connected to the internet, the following screen will display the IP address.
