A way to get the mac address ?

#1 Post by Constance » Tue Apr 29, 2008 7:25 am

Hello ^^

So, I was wondering if any tool on the UBCD is able to display a machine's network adapter's mac address(es) ?

Doesn't seem possible with the various PCI identifiers or AIDA16...

Thanks in advance for your replies :)

You can get the MAC address by booting to the NwDsk under DOS / Linux boot disks.. It will show the MAC address and IP at the end just before the prompt.

I'll look around to see if any other programs will show that info.. I also have several Linux Live CDs built into my build and they can usually show that info. as well, but have not checked.. Do you have any Live CDs in your build? If so, I'll look around later to see what you could use in that if I have the same Distro...

Nope, almost no customisation for now...

The quickest way is to enable PXE booting in the BIOS menu (if available). This normally displays the MAC address as it tries to boot.
