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 /ALL in a command prompt. The "Physical Address" is your MAC address.

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.

would I put the dashes in when inserting the address? Is it case sensitive?

IPCONFIG is on W98 machines too, although WINIPCFG has a prettier face. :)

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.
