My Windows 7 PC doesn't show me my MAC address

Specs: Windows 7

My PC doesn't show me my MAC address. When I type ipconfig in cmd it says "ipconfig is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." What can I do?

Try the command "getmac" instead.

Just as a matter of interest, why do you need to know your MAC address?

getmac doesn't work either. I need my MAC address because i'm a student and they give us internet personally, for every pc's MAC. So I gotta tell them mine

Sounds like there are some files missing from your install. (I take it you are using an account with administrator privileges.)

Ask your IT people to look at it; they should be able to determine the MAC fairly easily.

It sounds like your PATH is messed up. Don't mess up your PATH. In the meantime, you can attempt the following:
C:\Windows\System32\getmac

Open Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center. Then click Local Network Connection. Here you have a button named Details... Click it and you will see Physical Address. That is your MAC address. Something like XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

Please note that each network adapter, whether wired or wireless, has a MAC address given to it and this MAC address is unique. If you connect Wirelessly, you will have a different MAC address.
