Finding my computer's MAC address

I know that there's a simple command to run  in the command prompt window when I want to find my computer's MAC address to plug into my router for MAC address filtering.

 

I thought it was MSCONFIG but it's not and darned if I can remember the correct command.  Can anyone help me?

 

Thanks,

Re: Finding my computer's MAC address

Hi Walt,

 

Open the Command Prompt and enter the following command then hit enter.

 

ipconfig /all                  ( note there is a space between ipconfig and the / )

 

The MAC you need will be listed as the Physical Address.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best wishes,

 

DP-K

Re: Finding my computer's MAC address

Hi:

 

iconfig is not a valid command. You left the 'p' out.

 

You need to type ipconfig /all
