    Accepted Solution

    Yes you can. To get the mac address do the following:

    Macintosh OS (Pre OS X):

    Click the Apple Menu.
    Click on "Control Panels" to open your control panels folder.
    Open the "TCP/IP" control panel
    Go to the Edit Menu
    Click on User Mode
    Change the mode to "Advanced" and click "OK".
    Click on the "Info" button
    The Hardware address is your MAC address

    Macintosh (OS X):
    If your computer is running OS X, it is best to have it upgraded to at least 10.1

    From the dock, select "System Preferences".
    Select the "Network" Pane
    With the TCP/IP tab selected, the number next to Ethernet Address is you MAC address
