How to Find MAC Address

Is it possible to find the MAC addresses of my RPis using the device terminal? If so, what command works?

The purpose of finding the MACs to connect RPis to a college wifi network with captive portal.

You can use ip a and look for the link/ether row below wlan0. Or use old school ifconfig and look for HWaddr.

Additionally if the Pi is already connected via another WiFi: If you hover over the IP address information on the top right of the device’s detail page you’ll also see the MAC address.

Finally, while the device is still unregistered, you’ll see the MAC address on the bottom right side of the welcome screen.
