While the ipconfig command will work on Windows, the output is substantially long, making it much more difficult to find the relevant information. Instead, we recommend using the getmac command.
- Click on the Start menu button
- Type cmd in the search box and press Enter. This will open a black Command Prompt window
- Type getmac /v /fo list
- Find the entry associated with your network card, typically labeled Local Area Connection for wired interfaces or Wireless Network Connection for wireless interfaces
- The value listed as the Physical Address is the Hardware MAC Address for that network card. It will be in the format XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
- Type exit to close the Command Prompt window when finished
