I would like to wake on lan. Dsl Reports has a wake me remotely function. You need the mac address though. How do I figure out what my mac address is?
IPCONFIG is on W98 machines too, although WINIPCFG has a prettier face.Originally posted by Jeckler:
Or 'winipcfg' from Start-> Run on a 9x machine. Select your NIC. Adapter address is what you want. Fair warning: Your NIC as well as your motherboard must support WOL for it to work.
You don't necessarily put in dashes, it depends on what format the MAC is expected in. The MAC is six bytes of data, normally represented as six hex pairs. I've seen it entered with dashes, all mashed together, and in separate little boxes. Do whatever is called for in your situation.Originally posted by chewie1012:
would I put the dashes in when inserting the address? Is it case sensitive?
