how do i find my hp deskjet 3052A mac address

How do I find the MAC address to my HP Deskjet 3052A so i can add it to my access control list? I had to turn off my router's firewall to get it to find my printer. I would like to turn the firewall back on. I am using Windows XP.

Print a Wireless Network Test from the Wireless menu on the front of the printer.  The MAC address will be on there.

 

Do not use MAC filtering as a security measure as it is way too easy to break! Use WPA or WPA2 encryption for good security (and nothing else).
