Hi all, setting my wife a pc up and I need to find out how to discover what the pc's mac address is.

The pc is using XPhome, sp2.

That does not apply to XP, VoG (just tried it).

Run cmd, type ipconfig /all and note the physical address.

Um, you have to scroll down to 'On a PC running Windows NT/2000/XP:'.

Not getting scrollbars on that site VoG. You sure there's more?

"On a PC running Windows NT/2000/XP:

Click 'Start', then 'Run'
In the resulting dialogue box, type 'cmd' and then press <enter>
In the command prompt window you have just opened, type ipconfig /all
This command will usually give you a large amount of information, including the MAC address of the network card of the machine you're on.

A sample output from this command could be:"

Followed by a screenshot.

I get nothing below the first screenshot.

I'm getting used to this though; it has been happening more often lately. You should see the MSKB pages in my browser - all over the place with large parts missing entirely!

Thanks, but it's not as if I actually need to see that information.
