Not enjoying the Vistal...

I'm trying to locate the MAC address on a new VIAO and am having *no* luck. I checked the Device Manager and found the g adapter, but though I can get a ton of info about it, nada about the MAC address.

The only Mac related point is that I Installed Safari on it and this PC that I'm using.

What to do?






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

do you have a router that keeps stats of connected computers? I'm thinking that some routers might record the MAC address in their logs. maybe not, though.

good luck!

- Select "Run..." from the Start menu
- Type "cmd" in the resulting field
- Type in "ipconfig" in the DOS window that comes up.

(Can you get a DOS window in Vista?)



It is what it is.

You need to add a switch to get the MAC address.

c:\> ipconfig /all

It should list the ethernet LAN adapter and then the WiFi adapter. It could be different if you are using a USB port for the network connection.

This is a tool I use on all the machines in our lab. Lots of information available and you can tailor it to display exactly what you need - even some things not easily obtainable via the usual Windows methods. I don't have ANY Vista machines though, so YMMV

OOPS! If you're using (S)Lotus Notes as a browser, maybe you'd be better off not clicking the link - crashed Notes on my machine. Works fine in FireFox though.

That is correct -- I knew I was forgetting something. Consequence of working 12 hour days.
