There are various components that play a very important role in the different tasks that we carry out daily in Windows 11 and one of these is the MAC address. Just like we as people have an identification that allows us to perform various tasks in the network section, the MAC address has its own job, this MAC (Media Access Control) address is basically a unique identifier assigned to each network device and it is a hardware address housed in the network interface card not only of a PC but also other devices such as mobile phones, routers, etc., have a MAC address:

 

MAC address
The MAC address is composed of 6 pairs of hexadecimal characters (0-9 and AF) which are separated by colons or hyphens, with the MAC address it is possible:

 

  • Network devices can use MAC addresses to learn their location on a network, this will help data to be transferred correctly and securely to the recipient.
  • Being a unique identifier, it allows direct and error-free identification of all devices connected to a local or external network.
  • It complies with access control functions, that is, in the local network, the MAC addresses are available to control the devices that are allowed or denied in that network and for this, the access control list (ACL) is used. which performs a device filter using MAC addresses.
  • MAC addresses for can redirect data packets to the recipient on the local network.
