Finding the MAC address of the wireless card

After installing a 64-bit daily build of Ubuntu Linux Version 15.04 (Vivid Vervet). As described in the previous post, I switched the Internet connection from the temporary use of a wireless USB adapter to the T100’s on-board wireless card. I followed the instructions given earlier (Establishing Wi-Fi connectivity on the T100) with one exception.

The change was using a Linux utility to identify the wireless card’s MAC address rather than running the ipconfig program in Windows. In particular, I used the command:


On my system, the MAC address is shown on the line commencing with “wlan1” and after the string “Hwaddr”. The address is in the form: 40-16-7E-91-6F-75.


How can I find out my WiFi adapter’s MAC address on Ubuntu Linux?
