Description

Some Wi-Fi networks are configured to only allow devices with known MAC (hardware) addresses to connect.
Thus, some users would benefit from it being displayed in the UI (perhaps in the About section, under Device).

Unfortunately, the Connection Manager does not return the phone’s wifi hardware address: http://www.openwebosproject.org/docs/developer_reference/service_apis/connection_manager/

Neither does the Android Properties service: https://github.com/webOS-ports/android-property-service

You can use: luna-send -n 1 luna://com.palm.connectionmanager/getinfo {} {"wifiInfo":{"macAddress":"00:1D:FE:E0:C7:10"},"returnValue":true}
