Smart TVs and other devices
Due to the large number of vendors for these devices we do not provide specific instructions. We do offer these suggestions:
  • Look in the Settings menu on the device, either in the About or Networking portion if applicable.
  • Look at the manufacture's website or documentation.
  • Do a Google search, for example "how to find the mac address of vizio tv"
