Hi gomrok,
I assume that you need to know the MAC address of a machine on the same LAN as your PC?

Go to a command prompt, and run:
ping  (computer name)    ... make sure this gives a response
arp -a

This will show the IP addr and the MAC addr.

Does that help?

C:\>ipconfig /all
will display your own MAC address:
       Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-0C-F1-CE-0E-24

No - the "arp" command won't display the MAC address for your own machine.  You'll have to use the command that lrmoore posted for that.
