1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.

2. Click Run... on this menu.

3. Type cmd in the text box that appears. A command prompt window launches on the desktop.

4. In this command window, type ipconfig /all. Details are shown for each of the computer's network adapters. Computers installed with VPN software or emulation software will possess one or more virtual adapters.

5. The IP Address field states the current IP address for that network adapter.

6. The Physical Address field states the MAC address for that adapter.

May I ask another question in similar vein?

How do you find the IP address of a site you wish to prevent accessing your computer when the www....... cannot be used?

gogmagog - I am not sure of how to do what you want, but there is a way to prevent sites being accessed.

On each PC is a hosts file which tells the OS where to look for sites. If you want to block access to a site, you tell the PC to look locally, rather than remotely.

Anyway, you can read all about it if you click here

click here for a very good hosts file, which also blocks ads from appearing on your machine.
