Finding your MAC Address

A MAC address (media access control address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces.  The standard for formatting MAC addresses is six groups of two hexadecimal digits, separated by hyphens (-) or colons (:), e.g. 01-23-45-67-89-ab or 01:23:45:67:89:ab.  See the wikipedia article for more information.
