Apple TV: Where to find the Ethernet and wireless ID

This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

For some network configurations, you may need to know the Ethernet or Wireless ID* of your Apple TV. On Apple TV, you can find the network address using the following:

  • Software version 1.x: Settings > About
  • Software version 2.0: Settings > General > About

The Apple TV network IDs (both Ethernet and wireless) can also be found on the UPC label on the Apple TV box. This is the same label that lists the serial number for your Apple TV.

* What is the Ethernet or Wireless ID?

The Ethernet or wireless hardware address (also called a Media Access Control address or an IEEE MAC address) is a number that uniquely identifies a computer that has an Ethernet (or wireless) interface. It is typically written as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or colons, for example, "00:80:0:2:20:ef".
