    MAC - Media Access Control will be the same every time in PC but the IP - Internet Protocol use to change according to the network which you connect. MAC is burnt along with the Ethernet card in your system so it cannot be changed, it is the unique number where your system gets identified in the whole internet but IP is assigned when you connect to your network for eg. if you have a broadband connection from home then when you connect with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) you will be assigned a separate IP in the same way it changes for different ISP and network.

    Now to get the IP and MAC information in your Windows PC is simple, just follow the below steps

    STEP 1: Open command prompt from Start menu or simply press Windows key + R and type cmd and press Enter.

    STEP 2: Type ipconfig /all. Now check for the Physical address which is the MAC id and IPv4 is the IP for your system which will be different if you have wireless(Wi-Fi) and wired (LAN) network.

    To see the IP address and MAC address of the windows machine,1. Press windows key + R and type cmd then press enter
    2. On command prompt type ipconfig /all .this will show the physical address of every NIC. if your system having two network cards and both are enabled this command will show two 64 bit hexadecimal addresses like 00-23-AE-38-22-67. This address is unique address.and we can't change this address.

    3. Also this command will show ip address that is 32 bit address for IPV4 and (IPV6 address 48 bit) ,we can assign manual IP address to each NIC,or IP address can be obtained by system through DHCP.We can change IP address easily.

    Hey friend ,

    You can easily get ip and mac address of your system by simply following these steps:-

    - go to start
    -now go to control panel
    - go to network and sharing
    -go to network adapters
    -right click on adapter and go to status
    -now go to details.
    It will show you mac address and ip address and other information.

    You mac address is machine address it is hardcoded and it cant be changed properly.

    While your Ip address is logical address and you can change it whenever you want.

    Thnx
