I have a new iPad and MAC address filtering on my home wifi network. How do I figure out the MAC address of my iPad?

@Moshe, I did go through all my questions and accepted all of them. Thanks for the heads-up – gyurisc May 15 '11 at 9:13

On my iPhone, I can find my MAC address by going into Settings, then General, then About. The wifi MAC address is listed under "Wi-Fi Address". It's likely that the MAC address for the iPad is in the same location.

The bluetooth MAC is here as well if you ever need it. – Eltariel Jul 15 '10 at 6:08
Kyle is correct. The iPad MAC addresses (for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) are in Settings->General->About – DougC Jul 15 '10 at 6:18

As a slight aside, iNet Pro will show you the MAC address (and a lot more) of all devices on the network your iPhone is connected to.

The free app IPView shows:

  • cellular IP
  • Public IP
  • Wifi IP
  • Wifi MAC

The UI is less than stunning, but it works fine.
