« Go Back


Where can I find the MAC address on my SB6183 modem?
The label on the bottom of the SB6183 contains the Media Access Control (MAC) address, a unique, 48-bit value permanently saved in ROM at the factory to identify each Ethernet network device. To receive data service, the MAC address marked HFC MAC ID will need to be provided to the Internet Service Provider.  This document includes the following sections:
