    To my knowledge, no one gets you MAC address, and never should. The only time that happens is to connect to a local area network, which wants your MAC address for assigning you a constant IP address... or something like that. Point is, that your MAC address should never go out to the internet, the way I understand it.

    So, what you are looking for is the IP address. As for getting it though... heehee, not really something I think should be answered. What your asking is boardering on hacking/cracking information. I'll tell you the basics of it is that you have to have control over a computer that the computer you want to nail connects to. So, this person either has to connect to you, or you have to have control over the server of the site you are refering to, as this computer in question has to connect to the server and ask for the information on the page.

    That being said, I don't think you need to worry about it. The person with control over the site/server should have this information, and could issue a block/ban at any time they want.

    What Volvo said. Might I just add the MAC address is like a postal address because it enables communications to be sent to specific destination computers on the same network. Unlike IP addresses, which are issued by software and protocols, the MAC address is embeded onto the Network Interface Card and is unique. No two MAC addresses are the same.

    You can change your MAC address. I somehow did it by flashing my BIOS.
    Hard to believe, but it's true.
