Media Access Control (MAC) Address
A Media Access Control (MAC) address, sometimes referred to as a hardware or physical address, is a unique, 12-character alphanumeric attribute that is used to identify individual electronic devices on a network. An example of a MAC address is: 00-B0-D0-63-C2-26.
You will need a MAC address to register devices that cannot connect normally to the Eduroam network. Your device needs to be registered if it connects wirelessly to brandeis_open, or is a faculty/staff device that needs to connect via ethernet (wired connection).
Brandeis ITS also uses MAC addresses to troubleshoot connection issues.
