Airport hidden menu!

A great tip submitted by David Kinnander: Airport hidden menu! Wow, I didn't know this. It is awesome. By holding down "Option" and clicking on the Airport menu, you'll get a lot of additional info. You'll get info about signal strength, MAC address, etc. The MAC address displayed is the MAC address of the base station, not of your Mac. Thanks for the great tip David!

It is not like other menus where you can click on the icon and press "Option" afterwards. You really have to hold down "Option" first. I also think you will only see the additional info if you are connected to a wireless network.

Doesn't work for me either. I turned on Airport but I am not on a wireless network.

I've never really been very successful with getting Airport to work anyway. Seems like the only way to successfully create a wifi network is if you have a wireless router.
