    Hi @Arkplato

    A MAC (media access control) address of a computer is a unique identifier assigned to network adapters. So, every computer with a network adapter has, at least, one MAC address.

    On windows, you can get the MAC address by starting a command prompt and typing the ipconfig /all command.

    ipconfig /all
    In the ipconfig output, look for the Physical Address

    Windows IP Configuration

    Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : TEST-PC
    Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
    Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid
    IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
    WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 01-11-AA-00-12-00
    ...
    In the above example, the MAC Address is 0111AA001200
