Question about Computers & Internet
The mac address of your own computer and of your router can be found by typing " ipconfig /all " in the command prompt.

The MAC address is either printed on the label on the bottom of the router OR it can be obtained from the router's configuration setting.

Actually, the easiest way to retrieve the MAC address of your router (which won't be revealed by the ipconfig/all command, as this only reports the interfaces on your computer) involves two steps. Firstly, establish the IP address of the router. Often it is 192.168.1.1, but only by a common use convention. One easy way to find it is by running the command "route print" at a CMD prompt. Look for the entry that looks a bit like this:
Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.16.206.2 172.16.206.131 10
The "Gateway" address for the network 0.0.0.0 is your router (or it will be in 99% of home networks). In the above example it is 172.16.206.2.
The next step is to interrogate the ARP table of your machine, using this command at a CMD prompt:
You should get something like this in response:
Interface: 172.16.206.131 --- 0xb
Internet Address Physical Address Type
172.16.206.2 00-50-56-f4-1c-54 dynamic
So, now we know that the MAC address of the router at IP address 172.16.202.2 is 00-50-56-f4-1c-54.
All of the above pertains to Windows environments only.
