A Media Access Control (MAC) address is a unique identifier used to identify the device connecting to a network. Concordia uses this address to register devices for our internet access. It may also be known as Wi-Fi address, Ethernet address, or hardware address.


Note: A device may have multiple MAC addresses - one for each network adapter (ethernet/wired, Wi-Fi, etc).
