MAC Address

  • How do you find the MAC addresses of all the network cards in a brand new Dell 4600 server? Thanks.
  • I presume your runnign Windows 2000 or XP, so just open a DOS shell "Start -> Run -> cmd" and issue the command


    This will then output all IP (Layer 3 info) along with your network cards and MAC address's

  • That's exactly how you get the MAC address.  However, the IPCONFIG /ALL command will list the call the MAC address the Physical Address  FYI - Ethernet address is yet another term for MAC address.
  • I am having problems gathering my MAC address, i have typed in ipconfig/all into the window but all it returns with is:

    Windows IP Configuration

    then it waits for the next command? is there a way of displaying the details of the configuration?

  • That should work. An alternate way is to click start->run and type in winmsd.

    That will pull up the system Information application. Open the Components->Network->Adapter subtree.

    All of your network adapters should be listed in there. Note however that many of these will likely be virtual network drivers. You can tell them apart because their MAC Address field will say "Unknown".

    Only the real network adapter will have a MAC Address.
