    Use the System Information. To get to this, go to the Apple menu, select About this Mac, and click the System Report button.


    In the left column go to Network and select Wifi. Under interfaces select en1 and look for the MAC address.


    Alternatively you can use System Preferences > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced button > Hardware tab > MAC address.


    Best of luck.

    If the MAC address is not showing up in the network preference pane when the USB/Ethernet adapter is plugged in and connected, try looking at the adapter itself, or the packagibg it came in. Most ethernet adapters have their MAC address (sometimes referred to as Hardware Address) printed somewhere on the item or package labelling.


    You might also look in the Info tab of Network Utility (in Applications>Utilities) and select USB for the interface, and see if the hardware address is given there. Again, the adapter has to be plugged in and conncted.

    Start the Network Utility app located in the Utilities subdirectory of the apps folder.  Info tab and select the USB ethernet in the dropdown.
