FIND YOUR COMPUTER'S WIRELESS MAC ADDRESS
Your wireless network card has a unique identifier called a Media Access Control address, or MAC address. A MAC address is a unique number assigned to a Network Interface Card (NIC), commonly called an ethernet card. This "address" is created by the manufacturer (not by Paul Quinn College). A MAC address is a 12-digit number. Each digit is a number from 0-9 or a letter from A-F. Sometimes the digits of a MAC address are separated by colons or dashes.
Examples of possible MAC addresses include: 080007A92BFC, 09:00:07:A9:B2:EB, or 09-10- 4A-B9-E2-A4.
