Hi,

From your list the MAC is 'Ethernet HWaddr c8:60:00:ce:77:43'
You should also be able to use 'ifconfig -a' to show the MAC address. It will list the address as 'ether' which is a five hex number separated by ':'.
Please use the vbcode tags # for code, quote is left of # sign at the top of reply window to make your post cleaner therefore easier to read
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!
