How do I find my MAC address on my Game Console or Apple TV?

How to Find Your MAC Address



  • Turn on your Xbox console with no game disc in the disc tray.
  • From the Xbox Dashboard, choose Xbox Live.
  • These steps assume you cannot connect to Xbox Live until you finish configuring your Xbox console to use your PC's MAC address. Therefore, you should receive the following message: "Could not connect to Xbox Live. Do you want to troubleshoot your network connection?".
  • From the Connect Status screen, select Settings. The 12-digit number at the bottom-right corner of the Network Settings screens is the MAC address of your Xbox console.
