Re: roku ultra mac address

Has it already completed the initial setup?  If so, you can get it from Settings->System->About.  If not, I'd suggest using your phone as a hotspot to get through the initial setup and then you can find the MAC address from the Settings menu.  I don't believe it's written anywhere on the device or within the packaging.

Re: roku ultra mac address

Ah, ok...  a little bit different question.  It needs an Internet connection to complete setup.  With the Ultra, that can be wired or wireless.

I may be reading too much between the lines, but let's make sure you have a router before we go too far.  If you only have one Ethernet connection available then you'll have a problem.  If you have a box with multiple Ethernet ports then you should be ok.
