  1. Finding the MAC Address of my computer


    How do I find the MAC address of my computer? Is it different from the MAC Address of my Ehernet adaptor? When I type ipconfig /all in CMD, a long list shows up and I'm not sure which I need the "Physical Address" from. Is it the "Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi" one? Ethernet adapter Ethernet:

  2. Change Mac address

    The MAC address is like your devices ID ,so short of being able to change very core settings ,you're not gonna be able to do anything unless I'm mistaken.

    Maybe you don't need to change your MAC address, what is it you're trying to accomplish?

    Spoiler: I found this change mac w/o root I can't say whether or not this is an effective method it's just a method I found after searching this topic .
    I cant say whether or not it is "safe" or if the software required is free. use at your own risk.


    Change MAC Address of Android Devices without Root Access

    Go to Settings>About Phone>Select Status and then make a note of the current MAC Address of your Android device.
    Download the Android Terminal Emulator application from the Google Play Store. You can directly navigate to the Android Terminal Emulator Google Play Store download page by clicking here.
    Launch the above application on your Android device and then type “IP LINK SHOW”.
    Note the interface name of your Android device from the list.
    And then type in the command below,
    ip link set interfacename XX:XX:XX:YY:YY:YY
    Replace interfacename with the Interface Name of your network that you noted in Step 4 above and XX:XX:XX:YY:YY:YY with the MAC Address you wish to set.
    And that’s it. The MAC Address of your Android device will now be modified/changed.

    Finding the MAC address on Nokia 5800

    Just got the Nokia 5800XM today and I'm excited to try everything including the WLAN. I use MAC address filtering on my router so need the MAC address of the phone so I can add it to the access list. Does anyone know how I can find it?



    Thanks
