PUT MAC Address on gui

Simple request. I'd like to be able to see the MAC address of the PI Server on the GUI.

Why should it have the MAC address in the web interface? Pi-hole does not use it.

OK. real world situation. My router went south yesterday. I had locked the IP address for the PI at 192.168.169, using the MAC. I had to put in a new router, then had to SSH into the PI to get the MAC. It would have been so much easier to have done this from the GUI. Like I said, something nice, not a big deal.

Why not install a program which is made for this, such as RPI-Monitor? We just need to keep feature creep in mind.

Yeah, I can do that. Thanks. You've made a great program. I absolutely love it.

Use a tool like https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/ its free

Stuff like the Raspberry Pi running Pi-Hole should have a Static IP and the DHCP assigned Static IP via the MAC address only as a backup option!

But displaying the hostname/IP/MAC address couldn't hurt indeed :slight_smile:
