Using GetMAC Tool to display MAC address for Network Adapters

dos3 Media Access Control (MAC) address is the computer’s physical address inside the network. This tool will help you to configure your router(s) to allow only specific computers to access the network or internet. Thanks to William for asking this question last December 16, 2009.

If your computer has more than one network adapter, the MAC address of each adapter is listed separately.

Anyhow, if your a windows fan and you don’t like the name, you can still use another network tool called ipconfig to get the network adapters physical address (alternative name to mac address)

C:\>ipconfig /all

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

Hope this helps!
