Find the MAC Address of Your Device

A MAC address is a unique 16 character identifier assigned to each device that has internet connectivity.
It may appear in one of the following formats:
    0000:0000:0000:00
    00000000-00000000
    00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00

Registering your wireless device with IWU allows you to manage your devices and who may access them on the network.
