WAN MAC ID of the XR 500

Hi!
My ISP requires the WAN MAC ID of my XR500 to complete the PPPoE authentication procedure. I believe I accidentally provided the device MAC ID at the back of the router instead and that didn't work.

Is there any way I can obtain the WAN MAC ID of my device? Thanks!!

Isn't the default WAN/Internet interface MAC visible in Settings > Internet Setup ?

 

When I have it right, it's the LAN MAC +1.

As above you can see the router MAC address at the bottom of the Internet Setup page.

You're absolutely right, Thank you so much!

It also didn't occur to me that the WAN MAC can be set, so instead of going through the hassle of calling up my ISP, I just changed the MAC ID to that of my old router. The +1 bit is true!

Thanks again
