What OS?

by Alpha-Male In reply to How do I check Mac addres ...

If you are using Windows, you can find your MAC address by going to a command prompt and typing ipconfig /all (the MAC is listed as the physical address).

You can get more information about MAC addresses and configuring them here:

Hope this helps...

if using Windows click on start then run type cmd the command prompt will open. the type ipconfig /all make sure the space is there. The physical address is the Mac address it can't be changed.

You can too change MAC addresses

It's sometimes referred to as "Spoofing" but there are ways to change it.

In Windows you can change it in the registry or get a software tool to do the same thing.

If you have an enterprise mgmt application like HP OpenView you generally have the ability to change them with that type of app as well.
