LG Smart TV: Get Wifi MAC address for router filtering

Posted: May 4, 2013 in Knowledge Base

I have configured my router to only allow access from selected devices.

To get the Wifi MAC address, instead of going to Support->Product/Service Info, you need first temporarily turn off the MAC filtering in your router and connect your TV to Wifi.

Then, in your TV’s Network status, you can see the Wifi MAC address under network status. That is the MAC address you need add to your router’s MAC Filter list.

    Once the MAC filter is turned back on, it is booting the TV off. Suggestions?

    Thank you. Was using wrong MAC address from Product/Info, and couldn’t figure out why router MAC was still blocking. All better now!

    using a school network where you can’t temporarily turn off filtering, do you know how you would find the MAC address?

    Thank you! This helped. It took me time to use the information because there I could not find the TV network status on the tv itself. But of course I could find the network status online for the admin settings. Thank you!!!!
