nForce2 "MAC" Address???

By Raiders
May 28, 2004
  1. I read around the web about my K7N2-Delta on-board NIC and the reference to the "MAC" addy. ,, I did notice the field in my BIOS about that,,what is it and would it speed up my NIC??

    I only ask cause with the latest driver (313) installed my PC is kinda slow receiving packets (i read thats the term),,i also read that the addy. is located on the side of one of the slots,,for giggles i enterd that # in the Field Calling for it but nothing happend.

    Any Help would be awsome
    Thanks All.

    Run winipcfg and it will give your MAC address.

    This works in XP

    Open notepad and copy this in there:

    @echo.
    @ipconfig /all
    @echo.
    @pause

    Save as "IP.bat" in the C: Directory
    Go to the RUN box and type IP <Enter>

    That works great.

    Taken from -> MAC address definition @ Free-definition.com

    Are you having a slow connection to the Internet or to your LAN ? Your connection shouldn't be influenced directly by your MAC address, it might be slow for another reason : bad cable, NIC negotiating the wrong speed ( 10Mbps instead of 100Mbps for example ), etc...

    What have you tried so far to get a better connection ?
