Wii U: How to View the MAC Address
Some people like to add an extra layer of security to their wireless networks by using MAC address filtering. This post will explain how to quickly view the MAC address of the Wii U so that you can add it to your router’s MAC address allowed list.

1.On your Wii U, go to System Settings.
2.Tap on the Internet settings button.
3.Next, select the View MAC Address option.
4.You should now see your Wii U’s MAC address. Write it down and add it to your MAC address allowed list in your router if required for your network’s security.
