Many Palm devices will have the MAC address clearly marked on the back of the device. Older Palm OS devices did not have built-in wireless capabilities and required an add-on wireless card. If the Palm device has an add-on wireless card, please refer to the manual of the add-on card for information on how to obtain the MAC address.
