December 13, 2009, at 02:34 AM by andyb -- added one more variant of the three starting octets
Changed lines 3-4 from:

The base of the NSLU2 case has serial number and MAC address barcode stickers. The MAC address is shown in the form LKGxxyyzz where x, y and z are uppercase hexadecimal digits (i.e. { 0..9, A..F }). These hexadecimal digits are the last three octets of the unit's MAC address. The first three octets have been reported as various blocks including 00:13:10, 00:0f:66, and 00:14:bf, so the full mac address *may* be 00:13:10:xx:yy:zz.

Thus, a better way is to boot the NSLU2 while running "arping -f 192.168.0.1", as described on the page. As soon as the arping command completes, you can see the MAC address in the output of "arp -na | grep 192.168.0.1". Then, verify that the last three bytes correspond to those on your sticker.

I just received a unit with a serial number starting with SGA00?, and the MAC was 00:0f:66:xx:yy:zz.

Mine starts with 00:14:bf although the prefix is still LKG.
