Amazon Kindle: Find MAC Address

You may need to find out what the Wi-Fi MAC Address is for your Amazon Kindle so that you can connect to a wireless network that implements MAC Address filtering. Here’s how to find it.

1. From the Home screen, press Menu.

2. Select Settings.

3. The Wi-Fi MAC Address is located toward the bottom of the screen in the Device Info section.

Note: If this field shows “MAC Address not available”, you may have to connect to a Wi-Fi network to be able to see it.

    This is *almost* correct for the Kindle touch, but far enough off that I almost never found it. For Kindle touch, the instructions are:

    1. From the Home screen, press Menu.
    2. Choose Settings from the menu.
    3. From the Settings screen, press Menu *again*
    4. Choose Device Info from the menu.

    I have a K3. It has suddenly stopped connecting to my home router for Wi-Fi downloading of books, etc. I can get Wi-Fi from any “hot spot” however. I know my MAC address – how do I use it to re-connect with my router?

    New cheap Kindle is WiFi only. You need to press “Home” then “Menu”. The Device Info is not on the first page of the menu, so you need to turn the page to get the Device Info containinng the MAC address. (This is needed to program your wireless point exception list if you are using MAC ID authentication.)

    This does not work on my Kindle DX. Device Info shows software version and serial number but NOT MAC address. I can’t connect to my network without it.
