    Default How to read the MAC of an Access Point

    Hey All,

    I haven't done any Java programming in a while and now I have a question I just can't seem find an answer to using searches:

    Is there an (easy?) way in Java to get the hardware address (MAC) of the access point I'm associated with?

    I need to be able to identify the wireless access points in my network from the client side (applet) so that I can roughly get the position..

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    I dont think it is possible without a JNI interface to a native call.

    Applet is not allowed to create any connection to any other resource except from where it is created....
