Sometimes you need to know the MAC address for troubleshooting or other configuration settings. A quick way is open a command prompt, then type "getmac" command. It will be shown the MAC address(es) of local network adapters.

Description: the Getmac  command returns the media access control (MAC) address and list of network protocols associated with each address for all network cards in each computer, either locally or across a network.


getmac[.exe] [/s Computer [/u Domain\User [/p Password]]] [/fo {TABLE|LIST|CSV}] [/nh] [/v]
