How to find your MAC address using MS-DOS

The MAC address is the physical address your computer's Ethernet card or network interface card (NIC) uses to identify itself to other computers and devices on your network. There are different ways to find your Ethernet card's MAC address, depending on what operating system and programs you have installed. Since most Windows-based computers have access to the MS-DOS command prompt, using DOS to find your MAC address is one standard way to do it.

There are a couple of different tools you can use in MS-DOS to find your MAC address. All of them requiring opening a command prompt window, which you can do by typing "cmd" into the Run bar on the Start menu (or in Windows Vista or 7, you can type it into the Search bar instead).

- Getmac

Getmac is a utility that is included on Windows Vista computers and on newer Windows XP systems. Typing "getmac" by itself on a command line will return the MAC addresses of any NICs that you have installed in your computer. (If you have an Ethernet NIC and a wireless NIC, for example, Getmac will list the MAC addresses for both of them.)

- Ipconfig

Ipconfig is a command that will display your IP address if you are currently connected to a network. However, by adding the "/all" switch to it, you can also see your MAC address, as well as many other configuration settings. Type "ipconfig /all" and look for the line labeled "Physical Address." If you have more than one NIC, the MAC address for each NIC will be displayed separately.

My tablet pc, came without wifi mac address, so it doesnt have wifi but it does have internet using the cable

You should be able to purchase the necessary cable from your local computer store to connect your tablet to your router. Of course you will then be limited to being able to use your tablet only as far from your router as the length of the cable. There should be a way for you to find out the MAC address for your WiFi depending on which version of Windows you are using.

If you are using XP:

1) Go to your Start button, click on Run.., and when the command window opens type 'ipconfig /all' into the window.

2) The system will list all of the network adapters present on the tablet, and below the name of the adapter will be a line headed with Physical Address. This will be your MAC Address.

If you are using Vista

1) Follow the instructions above that were given for XP, and again when you look at the Physical Address you will see your MAC Address.

If you are using Windows 7:

1) Open the Network and Sharing Center > Local Area Connection > Details > Physical Address. You will want to make sure that the Local Area Connection you choose will be the built in WiFi of your tablet.

2) A box will open up with details on your Network connections, and the third item down will be the Physical Address.

Take the Physical Address information that you have received from the correct sequence above, and use it in your Router Setup to allow your tablet to connect using WiFi.

What is mac address?

A Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on the physical network segment. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the Media Access Control protocol sub-layer of the OSI reference model.

MAC addresses are most often assigned by the manufacturer of a network interface card (NIC) and are stored in its hardware, the card's read-only memory, or some other firmware mechanism. If assigned by the manufacturer, a MAC address usually encodes the manufacturer's registered identification number. It may also be known as an Ethernet hardware address(EHA), hardware address, adapter address, or physical address.

Hope this information will help you.

Forgot how to put a new computer on my router that is locked

go to the router's setup page from the working PC. it usually accessible using browser. type http://IP address of the router (go to Start-Run-CMD-type ipconfig hit enter on the working pc and look for default gateway to check the IP address of the router- it is by default).

It will prompt you to enter the username and password. type your router's password.

If you are trying to add a computer, check for MAC Filtering if it is enabled and make sure to add the MAC address of your new computer (Go to Start-Run-type CMD then hit enter- and type ipconfig/all and check for Physical Address). This physical address is the MAC address of the computer.

Cant find ip address on ps3

If you are directly wired to your modem (not router), you will have to reboot your modem each time you switch between computer and console. When the modem boots up, it leases an IP address to the MAC Address of the connected device. Each device has a unique MAC Address. If the MAC Address does not match to the one it leased an IP to, it won't allow access to the internet.

You can get past this by "cloning" the MAC Address of your computer to your console.

To get the MAC Address (Physical Address) of your computer:
XP: Open the start menu, click "run" and type "cmd" then hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in "inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical address". That is your MAC Address.

Vista: Open the start menu, in the search bar type in "cmd" and hit enter. A black screen with white writing should have opened. Type in "inconfig/all" and hit enter. Look for the line that says "physical address". That is your MAC Address.

Now get into the network configurations on your console, look for an option of MAC Address cloning. Input the MAC Address of your computer, save and reboot.

Hope this helps.

How do I find the MAC Address for my Polycom ViewStation ISDN Video Conference?

I just called Polycom and the guy said it starts with 0003 or 0004. Sure enough I had one of those numbers, it was the same as the serial number on the box the phone came in. This number is found on a sticker on the back side of the phone. Easy to find, but not labeled as a "mac address"
