Can't get my MAC address from my laptop

I'm trying to setup my wireless router. However, I need to add my mac address into the linksys website to finish the setup. However, when I go to 'Run' and type in 'ipconfig /all' nothing is being displayed in the mac "physical" address except all zeros.
How do I get my mac address if it is not displayed there?
thanks, Davette

Bring up the properties page for the connection from the network connections page in windows. Click the Support tab. Click the Detaisl button. The top line is "Physical Address". That's the same as MAC address.

I need to add a mac address to my router..so far not working


Open the setup page of the router and go to wireless tab. Click Wireless MAC filter sub tab. If wireless MAC filter is enabled then disable it. This option is always disabled by default. I think the wireless network might be the issue. If your wireless network is secured then make sure that you are entering the correct network key WEP / WPA .

Linksy WRT54GR Router - Invalid Wireless MAC Address [EN] [FR]


[Englisch]
Hi there,

i have been troubled with the configuration of the linksys router WRT54GR when trying to add my wireless devices to the wireless client table.

First I found following hint:
http://forums.linksys.com/linksys/board/message?board.id=Wireless_Routers&message.id=46517

then did the following which solved my problem!

I entered the MAC addresses of my wireless devices into the client table and made sure that all remaining entries where not of kind 00:00:00:00:00:00.
Apart from my valid MAC addresses (2 devices) i just had to enter 00:00:00:00:00:03, 00:00:00:00:00:04 and so on! The last entry in my table is
00:00:00:00:00:16.

That's it. Cheers

[French]

Bonjour,

la solution: pour mon problem est la suivante:
Apres les inscriptions des votre adresses MAC vouz entrez dans les lignes qui rester
adresses MAC qui sont different que 00:00:00:00:00:00.
Donc, si vous avez 2 adresses MAC la troisieme sera 00:00:00:00:00:03,
la prochain 00:00:00:00:00:04 .... juste a la dernier 00:00:00:00:00:16.

Voila!

I want to secure my internet



  1. Follow these steps to configure Linksys WRT160N wireless router.

    1.Open Internet Explorer, it does not matter if you see error message such as "The page can not be displayed" . now erase everything on the address bar and type in this IP address: 192.168.1.1 or the full address: http://192.168.1.1This is the default IP address for the router set by Linksys.
  2. 2 Hit the Enter key on your keyboard to connect to the router's web admin control panel. You will be prompted a login window for the username and password: the default admin username is "admin" and the default admin password is "password". If you can't connect to this admin control panel, you will need to change the IP address on your modem, maybe your modem is using the same IP 192.168.1.1 also, just unplug the router from your modem, and hook up your computer directly to the modem and fire up the web browser and enter the IP 192.168.1.1 and follow the on screen direction to get in.
  3. 3 It will then ask you to change password, then you make up a password that is meaningful for you to remember. You will need to write down the username and password for future reference because I am sure you will forget. You will need to reset the router if you forget the router password, and that will erase everything saved inside the router setting.
  4. 4 After successfully login, you will be in the Basic Setup of your Linksys WRT160 wireless router. You also might need to clone the Mac Address if you are using Cable Broadband (Comcast), to do this go to Mac address clone -> Enable, then clone my computers Mac.
  5. 5 If you are using Verizon, you might need to change the Internet Connection Type to PPPoE and enter your username and password that is created by Verizon.
  6. 6 I think many of you concern more on the Wireless secrutiy. Click the Wireless tab and enable the wireless security, you will need to choose a type of security encryption, WEP is weaker, you will need to type 10 characters for the pass code. The WPA or WPA2 is much stronger that it takes passphrase. For more security on wireless connection, you can also try to use MAC authentication, each of your laptop or wireless card has unique MAC address, you find out the MAC address on your laptop then enter it into your router so only this laptop can have access to the wireless connection.

Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

If you have Wireless MAC Filter Enabled on the Router then Either ADD the Wireless MAC Address of the Wii on the router or disable the Wireless MAC Filter on the router, also check the level of the Wireless Security supported by the Wii and accordingly set it up on the Router.

I want to add a laptop - wireless to my current system. I have a linksys G 3.4 GHz. I need help.


Do you know the current wireless card settings that are working on your current system.
All you need to do is to configure these SSID and encryption settings etc on the wireless card on this laptop so it will communicate with the router.
If you have enabled MAC address filtering on the Linksys then you need to add the MAC address of this laptop to the MAC address Filter table in the Linksys wireless settings.
Let me know if you need further help.
