PS2 fat network adapter mac adress??
PS2 fat network adapter mac adress?? –
On my slim in system info it shows a mac address but on my 3001 fat the mac address doesnt show . The network adapter is one I picked up at Game Stop about 6 months ago. Other than that it works fine with Hdloader.
On the old fats it did show mac address in system info?? Right? If It did I guess I have a bad one.
I assume you mean the information shown when pressing triangle ('Version' command) in the main menu of the PS2 bios, as displayed when booting without any disc.

If it works fine then what is your complaint ?

No. I suppose it might do so for some of the newer fat models, as the bios version used controls it, but I doubt that any fat PS2 will display the MAC address.

The fat PS2 models never had an internal LAN port, and the bios 'Version' info screen only concerns itself with built-in features. Since LAN is not built-in it is not covered, just like the HDD. (You'd have to install a Sony browser add-on to get HDD support in the Sony Browser.)
My own SCPH-39004 does not show any MAC address in that info screen, and your SCPH-30001 is older than that. I think you have a US v4 or v5 while I have a Euro v7. (I assume you really meant SCPH-30001, since no PS2 can have a 4-digit product code.)
There's no basis for such a conclusion.

Do you have any other reason to think that something is wrong with that LAN port ?
Have you even tried to use it for anything yet ?
This is easiest to test using the SMS media player to access SMB fileshares of a PC.
Or by using uLaunchELF to access files/folders on a PC running RadHostClient, or PS2ClientLoader (with ps2client.exe too, of course).
