In Windows, how do I find the MAC address of my network adapter?

To find the MAC address of your network adapter:

  1. Navigate to the command prompt.
    Note:
    For help navigating, see Getting around in Windows.
  2. Enter:
      getmac /v

    The MAC address for all installed network adapters will be displayed in hexadecimal format, along with other information such as the adapter name and type of connection.

MAC addresses contain only the letters A-F in combination with numbers. Any other character aside from A-F is a number.
