    Goto WIFI, select ADVANCED, Select DEVICE INFORMATION from the diagnostic information, Physical Address is what you want

    When I was setting up my device, that is the first place I looked, but it wasn't there, it only appeared once I had connected to something.

    He needs the WiFi MAC not the BT(Bluetooth) MAC.

    Hi Matt, it's there. The pop up menus is quite innocuous. Try again please. It looks like a text field. Should have the word category on it.

    I know my router Firewall log shows the mac addresses of devices that have been blocked. Made it simple to add my wireless printer when I needed.

    Go to Settings, then About (first item) then at the drop down at the top choose "Network". You will see the mac address there.

    will there be any security risk if the Z10 "Physical Address" is disclosed?

    No.

    It is only material to the devices on the same physical network (and must be unique thereupon); the MAC address is neither known or important to anyone outside of the local LAN.

    Hi, new to the BB / CB world (Wife has had one for years).

    It's Not in About. I thought it was there, but no. I had to go into networks (just below about), then WiFi, then Advanced, then device information. And I had to turn Bluetooth off (that might not have been required).

    Regards,Mike.

    I'll say this, it connected to my STS via Bluetooth Much easier than my old phone.

    It's in About. You have to tap categories at the top then select network.

    I did. It shows in About, IF you are connected. I just looked, and it's there, after I put the MAC in my router ( i have it locked up tight) and got it all connected, but before, it did not show.

    Otherwise, you have to dig it out of Network connections...
