I'm trying to tighten up security on my network and going to filter MAC
addresses at least until WPA is supported on the Squeezebox. Is there a way
to locate the MAC address of each box?

TIA -

Matt

It's on the bottom of the unit.

From a command prompt:

ping [ip-address-of-sqeezebox]
arp -a

This will give you the mac address.

It should be on the bottom of the Squeezebox... and there's always just
using ARP :)
