Finding the MAC Address from an IP Address

Hello Sean,

The MAC address, which is also referred to as the network address is fixed for each and every single computer and cannot be changed. You can view the MAC address by using the IPCONFIG/ALL command. Use the following simple procedure to view your MAC address:

  • On your computer, click start, then run.
  • Type cmd in the run dialog box and then press enter.
  • In the command line type IPCONFIG/ALL
  • Press enter.
  • A list will be displayed that includes your IP address, your MAC addresses for the computer (physical address), and the various networks that you are using.

Hope this helps.

There two IP Address on a network, 1 is for your ISP and the other is used for networking called Private IP Address.

If your computer is connected to the network, let's say you are using a router, switch or a hub you will find this information in different ways.

Router assigned an IP Address to the network uniquely from the other computer connected. Ip Address usually starts with 192.168.1.101 of depending on what IP Address has been set to the router.

There is only 1 way to check the Mac Address provided by your Internet Service Provider and that is to log-in to your router's interface.

Open Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1
Log-in using the assigned credentials for(admin/password) or ask your router manufacturer
Look for Status tab and look for IP Address
