    Hi all,

    Bought my wife a vtab 1008 for Christmas. Trying to get it set up but cannot find the MAC address, I allow devices on my network via the MAC address so I really need to know how to find it.

    Thank you in advance!

    No need to use an app. Menu button (bottom right 3 lines) > Settings > Wireless & Networks > Wireless Network Settings > Menu button > Advanced > MAC address is on second line

    Perky1964,

    FYI: MAC address filtering is relatively worthless. MAC addresses are easily changed/spoofed. You need to use WPA, preferaby, or WEP, at the very least.
