How to find the MAC Address

In order to connect a device to an Ethernet port in a Residence Hall, the device's MAC address for its Ethernet port must be registered to your EID.  For game consoles and other smart devices, this may need to be provided to the UT Service Desk for manual registration.  Devices that have wireless capability will have one MAC address for the wireless interface, and another MAC address for the Ethernet port.  The address corresponding to the Ethernet port is what needs to be registered. Note: For devices using a USB to Ethernet adapter, the adapter will have the needed MAC address. 

Mac addresses follow the format: A1:B2:C3:D4:E5:F6
