re: MAC to Numeric

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to Mac address to numeric va ...

The MAC address is already numeric.... It's just represented in 6 groups of hexidecimal numbers separated by dashes. Each group of numbers is easily converted to decimal numbers between 0 and 255. So, if you simply removed the dashes and converted each group and strung them all together, the resulting number could be a very LARGE number. But, you could add each group and come up with a decimal number no larger than 1530.
