WAN MAC Address

How do I find out the router WAN Port's MAC Address ?

If you are using the BlueYonder Cable Modem service, then you may sometimes need to register your router's MAC address with them. A MAC address is hardware ID, unique to an ethernet interface on every network device. The router connects to the BlueYonder cable modem via the router's WAN port.

The WAN port's MAC address is shown on the menu Internet Access Setup/Static or Dynamic IP. The currently active MAC address is shown in the boxes. Once you know that address (note it carefully !) you can advise BlueYonder of the address. If you need to over-ride the factory default, you can do so by selecting 'Specify MAC Address'. It is sometimes easier to copy your working PC's NIC MAC address into there.
