It's been a while since I worked on that board but if I remember correctly the MAC address is burned into the EEPROM. The board documentation should tell you where it is. 

 

By default the software uses DHCP. So if you enable stdout you can connect to it through the terminal and see what IP is issued by the DHCP server. Alternatively you can hardcode the IP address to make it static, I forget which file you do that it but it's in there somewhere.
