Network Interface Card (NIC) is a piece of hardware located inside your computer. This card allows your computer to connect to a network (e.g. Internet). All connection and routing devices on a network have a unique address associated with them which allows these devices to “talk” to each other. This address is known as Media Access Control (MAC) address. Sometimes an application wants you to enter MAC address of your network card. Following instructions tell you how to find this address.
