What is a MAC address?

Media Access Control address (MAC address) is the unique identifier of a network adapter. The MAC address is a 6-digit hexadecimal number, which is normally written as a twelve character alphanumeric string with a colon (:) or other separating character after every second character:

Example of a MAC address: 00:00:00:a1:2b:cc

If you computer has more than one network adapter (for example, an ethernet adapter and a wireless adapter), it will have a different MAC address for each adapter. When connecting via a wireless connection a user will want to provide the MAC address for the wireless adapter and when connecting via a wired connection a user will want to provide the MAC address for the wired adapter.

The best way to find a MAC address for your device is to do a simple Google search. In the SwiftConnect™ software there is a ‘Help’ error that will aid you in finding the MAC address in the most common devices.
