Where do I find the MAC address for my device?
The eGauge has one or two MAC addresses, depending on model. The first address is for Ethernet network communication (through the router or local area network). The second MAC address is associated with HomePlug power-line communication, and is only present in the EG301x model line.
The Ethernet MAC address (for EG300x and EG301x) may be found:
- On the back of the eGauge main unit
- On the installation information sheet (if EG300x)
- Displayed on the “Status” page (http://DEVNAME.egaug.es/status.html – requires username and password)
- On the packaging sleeve included with the eGauge (if EG300x)
The HomePlug MAC address (for EG301x) may be found:
- On the installation information sheet
- On the packaging sleeve included with the eGauge
Either MAC address may be used for device registration or verification of ownership. The MAC address associated with a HomePlug adapter may not be used for this purpose.
