hi just wondering if there is a command that can be run from start/run that will show me the MAC address of the machines i am working on.

have some laptops i need too add too the MAC ALLOW list of my wireless access point, and currently i m having too plug them into HUB via 10/100 cable then checking firewall, and reading the mac address, etc....
must be an easier way?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
