 AN!Wiki :: MAC

MAC is an acronym for Media Access Control. This is a 32 bit hexadecimal identifying string that is unique to every network device. This address is used in networking for locating a device when it does not have an IP address. MAC addresses are not routeable, thus, MAC addresses are only useful on the subnet the device is on.

For more information, please see the wikipedia entry.
