    Take note of the IP address of the radio on the Connect window or in the SmartCAT software. Then on your windows box, open a command prompt and type "arp -a". Find the IP address of the radio in the list , and the MAC address is right next to it.

    You can also look in your router's DHCP table. The Flex MAC starts with 50:56.

    That would likely work for most people, but I actually have multiple devices on my home network that have a Texas Instrument NIC. http://www.coffer.com/mac_find/?string=50:56

    That's TI also, which is why you can't assume it's always 50:56. My method or checking your DHCP lease table in your router will always provide you the correct MAC. http://www.coffer.com/mac_find/?string=84:7E

    Start SmartSDR and connect to the radio. Once you know the IP address of the radio from the Radio Setup form, open a command window and do an "arp -a" to get the MAC address.
