Your computer uses an Ethernet adaptor or card to communicate on the network. Every Ethernet adaptor is assigned a numeric ID by the manufacturer that is similar to a serial number. The ID is referred to by various names, including adaptor address, hardware address, physical address, MAC address and Ethernet address. The ID consists of 6 pairs of digits, usually separated by a character. The digits consist of the numerals 0 through 9 and the letters A through F (case does not matter). Here are example Ethernet addresses.
00 12 E5 B6 F3 31
If you register your computer online, the numeric ID is automatically displayed for you. If you need to find the address by hand, follow the steps below for the operating system that you are using.
