How to Confirm Physical Port MAC Addresses and Map Them to Windows Device Names

To confirm the MAC addresses of installed network interface ports and to map them to the Windows Device Friendly Names, you need to open a command prompt and run ipconfig /all:

  1. Choose > Start > Run.

    The Run dialog box appears.

  2. In the Run dialog box, type cmd then click OK.

    The cmd.exe DOS Command Prompt window appears.

  3. In the cmd.exe DOS Command Prompt window, enter the following command at the prompt: ipconfig /all

    The output from the ipconfig /all command identifies the installed network interface ports by the connection name in the order of enumeration.

    The output does not necessarily follow an alpha or numeric order. You can customize the connection name in the Network Connections window. For details, see Microsoft's documentation. The following figure illustrates how the Windows operating system, by default, assigns logical names to network interfaces.

    Where

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection

    Identifies the first Ethernet adapter port.

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2

    Identifies the second Ethernet adapter port.

    And, Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 3

    Identifies the third Ethernet adapter port.

    In the sample output:

    • Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection is the Windows default logical name (friendly name) assigned to a network interface.

      Note that the first Ethernet Adaptor Local Area Connection appears with a null value. This entry identifies the connection-specific DNS suffix (for example, east.sun.com) and the physical MAC address for that port.

    • Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection 2 identifies a disconnected media state, a description, and the physical MAC address for that port.

    • The numeric value following the Windows logical friendly name refers to the network connection number.
