EtherTen - No MAC Id on Board

Post by txniteowl » Thu Sep 13, 2012 6:41 am

Any ideas how I can obtain the MAC address from my board which shipped with no MAC address sticker attached. Any programs out there to read the chip? Help! :( :( :(

Comments.

Thanks for the help previously...issues resolved. :) :) :) :)

Note that just like the official Ethernet Shield, the EtherTen does not come with a specifically assigned MAC address stored in hardware. The MAC address must be set from inside your sketch, just as you'll find near the start of each of the Ethernet examples. You can pick any valid MAC address you like as long as it's unique on your network.

Most examples use -
byte mac[] = {
0xDE, 0xAD, 0xBE, 0xEF, 0xFE, 0xED};
