Windows – What’s the MAC Address of the Ethernet adapter

mac addressnetworkingwindows 7

I have purchased a Dell Inspiron N5010 (with Windows 7). It works all fine but I need to know the MAC Address of the Ethernet adapter.

I have tried IPconfig /all, but it does not show my Ethernet adapter. How can I check and confirm my Ethernet card's physical address. I need to use a restricted LAN which requires me to know the physical address of my Ethernet adapter

Unless you have something like Virtualbox installed (which installs its own set of virtual LAN cards), you can try typing getmac at the command prompt. It should provide you your LAN card's MAC address.

If you do have Virtualbox installed, you might consider running getmac /v instead for more verbose output. It will list down the connection name associated with the MAC address.
