How to find a laptop MAC address in Windows 7?? Page 1 / 2

mariner51, May 27, 10:29pm
I have a new ASUS laptop, running Win7 Professional 64bit, and I am having trouble finding the MAC address so I can log it in my router.

I have tried to get to the "Details" window by right clicking on "Wireless Network Connection" but in the drop-down menu the choice "Status" is greyed-out.

Can anybody please help me with this?

Click start button - type 'cmd' then hit enter - type 'ipconfig /all'.
Look for physical address, that will be your MAC address

"Windows cannot find 'ipconfig/all' "

Put a space between ipconfig and /. So ipconfig is one word, then space, then /all

in that CMD, try to find "wireless lan adapter wireless network connection".
so the "physical address" under this section will be your mac number. enjoy :)

1. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click on the Network and Sharing Center icon.

2. In the left pane, click on the Change adapter settings link. (see screenshot below)

3. Right click on the network connection (network adapter or NIC) that you want to see the MAC address of, and click on Status. (see screenshot below)

4-Click on the Details button. (see screenshot below)

5. To the right of Physical Address (Property), you will see the MAC address (Value) for the selected network connection (network adapter or NIC). (see screenshot below)

6. When done, click on Close (steps 4 and 5) twice and close the Network Connections window (step 3).
