      You want the WAN MAC address?

      Simple tool for extracting the username and password from YOUR router.

      That tool will give you all the info, username password and WAN MAC

      Re: Need my MAC address!

      @marjohn56 - he can't find his Sky supplied router, but he already knows the username and password so he just wants to "reverse engineer" the MAC address from the known username and password.

      @jjhjhjhjhhjhjfdssasdsg - for what it's worth, the MAC address of my Sky router is the first part of the username before the @skydsl - I'm assuming that is always the case!

      Ah, I read that differently to you..

      That'll give him the LAN mac address, at least that's the case with my mine.

      Re: Need my MAC address!

      Yes, its not very clear whether he has lost the router or just can't find the MAC for it.

      If its the latter then the both the WAN and LAN addresses can be found on the Router Status page under 'Broad port' and 'LAN port' respectively. The LAN address is also on the label on the back of the router.

      I've had my username for many years on this forum and many others, without any complaints. If you're referring to the OP then maybe his keyboard is sticking.
