How can I find the network card mac address in Windows (7)?
I think it applies to any windows.
- Open command window: [Win] + R, type CMD - press Enter
- Type ipconfig /all
You will see all required info.
why not just try:
KISS Principal at play!
We use the MAC address in combination with Wake On Lan methods to power on machines remotely for updates etc etc.
Because no one thought to get MAC addresses before rolling out machines and we have no auto asset DB it was going to be a bit of a slow process to gather all the MAC addresses.
So I wrote this simple line that goes in the login script
ipconfig /all | find /i "physical address" > \\server\share\%computername%.txt
This will enter the mac address of the current logging in machine to a file in a shared area with the filename set as the computer name. Obviously you can use this how you want but is a nice method of collecting data.
In the box that appears type CMD and click 'OK' In the black window that appears on screen type
Information about all of your network adapters will be returned. The MAC address is listes as 'Physical Address'
and hit return to end the session
If you prefer a GUI method,
- Open Network Connections (in Control Panel)
- Double-click your connection icon (e.g. Local Area Connection) - or right click and choose Status
- Click the Support tab
- Click the Details button
The MAC address is listed as the Physical Address in this window.
