    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.
