Find Chromecast Mac Address

The Mac address is generally quite simple to find out, but it is noted differently depending on the provider. With Chromecast, you can establish the WLAN connection during setup and select "Show Mac address" by clicking the three-dot menu.

If you have already set up Chromecast, you can determine the Mac address by opening the Google Home app. Here, just select the right Chromecast, tap "Settings" and scroll down to the "Information". More steps are not required to successfully determine the Chromecast Mac address.

Chromecast is connected to the TV via HDMI, and the video and audio files are transferred directly via WLAN. If you also want to play content from your PC or other screens directly on the TV, you must download the respective app:

  1. Connect Chromecast to the TV via HDMI and ensure Wi-Fi connection.

  5. Follow the instructions on the screen

Amazon Fire TV Find Mac Address

You can find the Amazon Fire TV Mac address in the main menu under Settings. Scroll down to the menu item "Device" and click on "Info". In addition to the serial number of the Fire TV and the device name, you will also find the Mac address under the "Network" item.

If you are lucky, you will find the Mac address of the Apple TV on a sticker on the back of the device. However, if you do not find it there, you should turn on the device and open the settings. From the suggested menu items, select "About", where you will find the Ethernet ID and the Wireless ID. These are already the respective Mac addresses for LAN and WLAN.
