MAC Address

A MAC Address is a unique identifier for many devices. The format of the MAC address will be sets of two characters, letters and/or numbers, usually separated by colons or dashes. The MAC Address consists of a total of 12 characters (e.g. AA:12:BB:34:CC:56).

You'll need the MAC Address to register any device with which you want to connect to the LinkIT wireless network.
