The Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier for your device that acts as a network address. The MAC address is often referred to as the burned-in address, physical address, Ethernet address, and hardware address. This is because the MAC address of the device is provided by its manufacturers and can’t be changed. All the internet-supported devices will have their own MAC address. In your LG Smart TV, you can find the MAC address under the Network settings.

Knowing your LG TV’s MAC address is as important as updating your LG Smart TV. When talking to customer support, they will ask for the MAC address of your TV to check whether your LG Smart TV is brought from the official store or from any non-licensed stores. If you have any network-related issues like LG Smart TV not connecting to WiFi or not loading any web pages, you can use the MAC address to carry forward the troubleshooting steps.

MAC Address Structure

Usually, the MAC address is a series of letters and number combinations separated by hyphens and colons. For instance, a typical Mac address will look like 4C:19:95:FQ:5U:32
