Windows: How to find out the MAC address of your ethernet / wireless adapter?

Filed under: Windows — Christopher Kramer @ 15:25

Trying to find out the MAC-address of my ethernet adapter, I tried ipconfig and all the properties of the adpater in device manager but could not find it. Then I found out that ipconfig displays it, if the /all switch is added:

ipconfig /all

This will list all your network devices. Their MAC addresses are listed as the “Physical address”.

To run this, you need a command window. You can get it like this:

[Windows-Key] + [r]

Type in “cmd” and hit enter.

Then you get a black window with white text where you enter “ipconfig /all”.

(The windows-key is the one between the left CTRL and ALT. If you don’t have one (I heard this still exists ;-)), click Start/Run in Win XP or click Start, type “cmd” and then enter in Win7).

Recommendation

Try my Open Source PHP visitor analytics script CrazyStat.
