Windows 7: Haven't got MAC adress!

06 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Haven't got MAC adress!

Hello everyone,

I needed to get my MAC adress, so I got to cmd, and typed ipconfig /all , but I got all of these messages, and the physical adress is 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 E0 .. So that can't be right.
I also see all these messages (from 1 to 75): Tunnel-adapter for LAN-connection* (1-75)
medium status: medium disconnected (in Dutch "ontkoppeld")

So, I do have wireless connection, but the connection is really really slow sometimes (don't know if that has anything to do with it).. But I want my real physical adress! :p

I hope someone can help me! thanks in advance.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Open a cmd prompt with elevated privileges and type getmac at the command line window.

You could also check in Device Manager and try updating your wireless adapter's driver.

I don't really know if the attachment is here, but I've attached a file, a pic of what message I get when I enter the getmac... So, I can see two adresses, so which one is my MAC adress now? And what can I do about the message 'Connection to medium interrupted' ? (Or I don't really know a well translation for that sentence )

Oh and the adapter's drivers are all updated.

00-26-22-65-C5-6E is your MAC address.
You don't have to worry about Tunnel connections being disconnected. They're used for VPN and, sometimes, IPv6 transportation over IPv4. If they're disconnected then you're not using these kind of services.
