How to find the IP address and MAC address of a network card

  1. Press the Windows Start key to open the Start screen.

  2. Type cmd and press Enter to launch the command prompt.

    • Note: You do not need to click on anything on the Start screen—typing will automatically initiate a program search.

    Type CMD to search for command prompt

  3. Type ipconfig /all at the command prompt to check the network card settings.

    ipconfig /all

  4. The IP number and MAC address are listed under the appropriate adapter as Physical Address and IPv4 Address.
