how to get MAC address

Postby sophy08 » Tue Nov 27, 2007 3:55 am

Hi, in order to get my bluetooth diaup to work, need to know the MAC number/address of my laptop. Any idea as to how to get this? I am using Mint 4 (default installation) and I am not connected to the internet (this is what I want to do eventually).

ifconfig or iwconfig (for wireless)
without switches gives you much information, including the MAC address
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
