How do I find mac address of my N8 through the phone.

On my old e71 could just look behid battery, not so easy on the N8.

 

Tried *#62209526# which is supposed to work for n97, no luck on N8.

 

I did end up finding the number on the box, but I'm not always going to have the box with me:smileyhappy:

 

Anybody figure this out?

Re: How do I find mac address of my N8 through the phone.

Not sure what is the problem in your case but at least on my N8 the *#62209526#  (*#mac wlan#) code works fine when inserted in to the "Call" dial pad and shows the WLAN MAC address.

Hi all,

 

the code above is working fine for the N8. The traduction in French is just not correct : CAM instead of MAC ...

Re: How do I find mac address of my N8 through the phone.

Hi there,

When I put the code to show the mac address, it comes with less caracteres.

SO when I input on my router I receive the message wrong mac address.

 

anyone can help me ?!?!?

Welcome to the forum!

 

Do you know what product code device is from label peeled off the back?

 

How many of the necessary 6 x 2 = 12 characters are displayed?

Re: How do I find mac address of my N8 through the phone.

When you type the code in, the pop-up box has 2 rows. Watch for the first 2 characters which are on the first row.

Make sure you have the 0 (space) between mac and wlan.
