Hi - trying to find the MAC address for Google Nest hub to enable connection in a dorm room.  We've followed all previous instructions - gone to "device information" and looked under Techical Information--all we see is :

System Firmware Version
Cast Firmware Version
Country Code
IP Address
Thank you,

I'm having the exact same issue, I need to attach it to my University's network, but they use MAC filtering. 

Every single post I've seen says that the MAC address is under Technical Information, but it's not.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Exactly the same issue as OP. Trying to setup for daughter's Uni but not under Technical Information. Have started the procedure using phone hot spot but even though I can get to the "Connect to WiFi" screen and choosing the 3 dots option the "Show MAC Address" option is greyed out.


Any help or advice gratefully received
