Solved MAC address EC_DD_FE_E8_76_12 into a decimal

March 14, 2014 at 11:18:52
Specs: Windows 7
I can't figure out this MAC address into decimal form? I've looked through all of my computer books that I've gotten over the last three years, to no avail. I'm really getting frustrated, I can change decimals into binary, decimals into hexadecimals, and both into binary. And of course binary into decimal and hexadecimal. I just can't seem to get the answer to this question, and how it is done. Any help I can get will truly appreciated! Thank you!

✔ Best Answer
Ignore the byte separators and convert it. The MAC address is just a 48-bit number represented as 6 bytes, printed in hex.

The problem I have with the info ijack linked to is that it skips over a couple details and without those details a student would have a difficult time understanding the process/equation. Even with my knowledge of the conversion process, I had a difficult time following the explanation. It also is converting to binary instead of decimal as the OP asked about.

Here's a link to what I think is a better explanation and example.
