I'm running XP SP2 and need to get the MAC address of the card running on this machine.

Where do I get that from?

Enter following from command prompt:

ipconfig /all

This will list all your network cards, they state, and info incl. IP, MAC, and others.

Yep, it was listed under 'Physical Address'. Thanks. – Lance Roberts Oct 22 '09 at 16:48
Um, I believe that should be ipconfig, eh? – squillman Oct 22 '09 at 17:49
Why not actually try it before you comment? :) There has never been an "ifconfig" in Windows. – bzlm Oct 24 '09 at 12:08
Right, post updated. – Andrejs Cainikovs Oct 24 '09 at 14:45

If you just need the mac address type: getmac

Doesn't work here. Must get installed with some other package? – gbarry Oct 24 '09 at 18:47
@gbarry What OS are you running? – mikedopp Oct 27 '09 at 16:12
sudo apt-get install arp-scan sudo arp-scan if using a flavor of Linux. – mikedopp Oct 27 '09 at 16:14
