Do the Network Connection Test. MAC address will be displayed on Line 1.

I see where it says Mac Address but it checks it and goes to Gateway Ping and doesn't go through so it wont show me what my Mac Address number is. Is there someplace else that it will tell me the actual number is?
Thanks

I don't understand... If it check MAC address, as it should, *that* is your MAC address. There isn't another. Even if all else fails, MAC address does not change - it's "burned" into the TV. That *is* your MAC address.

I mean it does not say like 00:0F:00:F0:00 or however the number letter combination is. It does not tell me what my actual Mac Address is it just checks off the words "Mac Address" and i need to know the actual number letter combination which it does not tell me.
thanks

OK, I got it now. Now sure why Samsung keeps changing setup like that.

If your TV does not have a sticker on the back (or on the side) displaying its MAC address, there is still one thing you can try.

I assume you're using some sort of router to connect to the Internet. If not, borrow one. Connect one computer and the TV to the router. Go into Router Setup and look for devices connected to the router. Depending on the brand, this could be under Status / Local Network / DHCP Table or Attached Devices, etc... You should see the connected devices, their IPs and MAC addresses.
There is another way to look up MAC addresses via a DLNA server, but you'd still need a router for that.
That's all I can think of right now. Hopefully someone will reply with "Hit the Info button when you're on so-and-so screen" or something simpler...:)
