Settings and Connection Status List under network settings.
 
I have my PS3 assigned an IP, but it doesn't show up on my DHCP Client Table.  Does having it on DMZ affect that?

DMZ is for static ip addresses only. Only machines configured to receive an ip automatically will appear on the DHCP table.

kman79 is right it's located under Settings and Connection Status List under network settings, but you have to scroll down to see it.  The first MAC address it shows is the address of the router you are using.  Depending on the router, the DHCP list should show a list of both leased and Static assigned IP addresses and their coresponding MAC addresses.

No, that's not it.  If you were observant you would notice it's your router's MAC Address.

Dude, there are two MAC address there.  The first one is listed just underneath the SSID info I think (I'm at work so I can't check).  That is the router.  The second one you have to scroll down to see it.  That one is the PS3.

The MAC address is found in the same location you would on the PSP. Specifically: SETTINGS>SYSTEM SETTINGS>SYSTEM INFORMATION.

Hopefully this helps you.
