How to find MAC address in your PC?

A media access control address (MAC address) of a device is a unique 12-character identifier (e.g. 00-00-00-XX-00-X0) assigned to a network interface controller (NIC) for communications at the data link layer of a network segment.

Every NIC has a hardware address that's known as a MAC, for Media Access Control. Where IP addresses are associated with TCP/IP (networking software), MAC addresses are linked to the hardware of network adapters.

A MAC address is given to a network adapter when it is manufactured. It is hardwired or hard-coded onto your computer's network interface card (NIC) and is unique to it. Something called the ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) translates an IP address into a MAC address. The ARP is like a passport that takes data from an IP address through an actual piece of computer hardware.

If your computer has more than one network adapter (for example, an ethernet adapter and a wireless adapter), it will have a different MAC address for each adapter.
