How to find out mac id of a router

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My university has this new security thing where you have to install a program on your comp and it checks to make sure windows auto updates are all on, then registers your NIC's MAC in their network to let you get internet.

If you have linux, all you have to do is call your mac id in and they'll add it.

I want to use a router in my dorm, so I was wondering how I can find the router's mac so I can call it in.

It is usually listed on the bottom of the router near the IBM or UPC label.
