    How do I find MAC ID/Address??
    I have tried searching this forum and on all the apple manuals and online stuff.

    Before I can get access to the wireless net at school, I have to give them my MAC address of my macbook and since I'm only a week into my Mac, from having PC's all my life, I'm unfamiliar with how to find it. Thanks!

    Go to System Preferences, choose Network, double-click Airport and the MAC address is your Airport ID.

    Funnily enough, a Mac Address as nothing to do with Apple Macs. It's short for Media Access Control and is a system for making your network card unique, like a thumb impression. Even Windows Network cards have mac addresses. So either way, you would've needed this number.

    It's MAC address not Mac address.

    Specs:
    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    Besides looking it up in System Preferences or the System Profiler
    1. It's on the box that it came in
    2. It's on a sticker inside the battery bay (laptops) or on the back (desktops) or the CD door, or somewhere.
