How do I locate my IP address or MAC Address?

IP ADDRESS: 4 sets of numbers separated by periods. Taylor campus IP addresses always start with 10.

MAC ADDRESS: 6 pairs of characters separated by either - or :. A MAC address can contain numbers 0-9 and letters A - F. (MAC Address is sometimes also called "Physical Address".)
