Find HP Touchpad MAC Address

Got my shiny new $99 HP Touchpad today. To retrieve the MAC address for the HP Touchpad I had to:

1) click on the "Center" button, then the up arrow in the bottom right hand corner. That opened the "Launcher".

2) I then navigated to the SETTINGS TAB and clicked on the Device Info button.

3) Then I clicked on the More Info button which displayed both the Wi-Fi and Bluethooth MAC addresses. It also showed that the model # of my Touchpad is HSTNH-I29C, hardware version A. Software version is HP webOS 3.0.0.

Like the Android Honeycomb tablet Ausus Eee Pad Transformer, you wander why HP didn't show the option to display the MAC Address during the initial setup of the Touchpad when you choose a Wireless Network to connect to. Many people use MAC Address filtering as an additional layer of security for Wifi. Instead I had to turn off MAC Address filtering first on my Wireless access point to have setup proceed, then locate the hardware address and enter the info and then re-enable the feature on the wireless AP.

Finding Mac Id on Hp TouchPad

From HP User Guide Page 182

Does your Wi-Fi network use MAC address filtering? MAC address filtering is a common method of securing a Wi-Fi network. The filter list is similar to a guest list at a party; if you’re not on the list, you can't come in. The filter list (allowing access to your network) lives on your Wi-Fi router. If your Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you need to log in to the Wi-Fi router and add your device’s MAC address to the access control list. Because each router has a unique method to perform this task, consult your router documentation for detailed instructions. To find your device’s MAC address: Open Device Info and tap More Info. The MAC address is the Wi-Fi hex number under Device.

RE: Find HP Touchpad MAC Address

The description is extremely generic and is not helpful. Either pictures or detailed instructions on how to get to the "center button" would be a vast improvement. My Touchpad goes straight into the setup mode with the only option of running diagnostics.

Definitely a screen shot would have helped, but I did read the quick start instructions and I figured the Center button from that. Instructions worked great for me.
