Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies
Page 66 of the network users manual explains how to find the mac address on your printer, you have to print out a test page from the printer and it should give you the info, still get the manual so you can read up more on network settings:
Download the manual and make sure you have adobe reader installed on the computer.

I was not able to find the MAC address
by printing out a "test page" from the printer list in the control
panel by selecting properties and "print test page". Rather, I found the MAC address by printing out the "Printer Settings"
from the printer itself. You click the big blue status button on the front of
the printer three (3) times fast and a 3 page report will print out with the
settings. The MAC address is actually listed as an
“Ethernet Address” at the top of page 3 on the report.
You can also obtain the IP address of the printer on page 3 of the settings report and the method of assignment (e.g. “via DHCP”). You can then check the DHCP client table of your router through the graphic user interface of the router and verify the IP and MAC address connection of the printer to your router. The router may also list a client name for your attached device which corresponds with the NetBIOS name of the printer on page 3 of the settings report, e.g. “BRN008077C8553D”.
After all this I plan to print a label with the MAC address and attach it to the back of the printer where the serial number is, which is where Brother should have posted it in the first place.
