                              iPhone, Wi-Fi, and MAC Address Filtering

And now I have a shiny new iPhone and I want to use WI-Fi for?it (especially for Skype international calls, of course.) Only problem – couldn’t find the MAC address.

                              So ya gotta love the Genius Bar at your local Apple store. They solved my problem in about 90 seconds. Go to Settings/General/About. Scroll down.

                                Thanks – glad it was useful I have since enabaled a Playstation connected to my TV – which made Netflix streaming possible. Easy, and the Sony doc made it easy to find the AC address.
