Locating Mac Address
« on: February 25, 2012, 04:40:39 PM »

I just received my AirPadXL today but I cannot figure out where to find the mac address so that I can add it to allowable devices on my wireless router (secure settings).  I have looked under Settings/About this Device but it does not seem to be there. There I only find Model #, and other numbers, including Android version, Baseboard version, Kernel version and Build Number.  Anyone able to walk me through process to locate the mac number?
Thanks.

Also, most routers will maintain a log with the MAC address of devices attempting to connect. You can usually deduce which is which.
