Last updated 4 years ago
On a Windows PC:
  • Select Run from the Start menu and type command and press enter. This will display the command prompt.
  • Type ipconfig /all to display information about all network adapters installed on the machine. 
  • On Windows 7 and 8 find the selection titled “Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection” for wired connections or. “Wireless Lan Adapter for Wireless Network Connection” for wireless.
  • Find an entry called Physical Address, which is the network adapter’s MAC address. 
On a Mac:
  • Select "About This Mac" from the Apple Menu.
  • Click "System Report"
  • Click the Network heading on the left-side column.
  • On the right side, the window will list every kind of network interface set up on your computer (Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth PAN, VPNs)
  • Click each "Active Service" and look for MAC Address for Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
On an iOS device (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch):
  • Open the Settings app
  • Tap General
  • Tap About
  • Scroll down and the MAC address will be listed as "Wi-Fi Address"
