How to find the MAC address of the Omega Onion
Is there a way to find the MAC address during initial setup?
If you run
ifconfig, you should see the following:
root@Omega-172C:/# ifconfig lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:65536 Metric:1 RX packets:92 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:92 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:7869 (7.6 KiB) TX bytes:7869 (7.6 KiB) wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF inet addr:192.168.1.101 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::42a3:6bff:fec1:172d/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:40040 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:29579 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:6274033 (5.9 MiB) TX bytes:29299497 (27.9 MiB)
MAC Address is

Just out of interest did you get a block of OUI's for use with the Omega? If so then tell the guys over at nmap cause atm not showing up as known

We have an MA-M assignment form IEEE starting with 40-A3-6B.
You can look it up at https://regauth.standards.ieee.org/standards-ra-web/pub/view.html#registries and search for "Onion".
I think that it is weird that in the web console under "status" the MAC address of the router is shown. I would expect there the MAC address of the Omega Onion.
@Rinus-van-Weert Good point. We can show both.
The MAC on my Onion2+ begins with 42:a3:6b:00 instead of 40:a3:6b:c0 as on both the box and device stickers.
