There is a 48 bit 6 byte number on each network adapter. It is from the manufacturer and is used to identify the adapter on the network. However, I do not know the name to this number. Any suggestions?
Thanks a lot.
I do not know the name
The answer to your question is simple. It is called the MAC(Media Access Control) address. There is a unique address assigned to network interface cards written on its hardware or ROM.
The 48 bit address is sometimes written in six groups of 2 hexadecimal digits in transmission order separated by hyphens(-) or colons (:). Sometimes it is written in 3 groups of 4 hexadecimal digits.
I hope this helps.
