Deprecated Article

Due to Microsoft discontinuing support of the Windows 7 Operating System, our support team is unable to provide support for Windows 7 devices operating on our network. The following guide is for reference only and should be considered deprecated.


The following guide provides details on how to find the MAC Address of your Windows 7 PC or Laptop. This will assist you in identifying the devices registered on your account in the Q2 portal.

You may also be asked to confirm this information when contacting the support team for technical support.

To locate your MAC address by this method you must already be connected to a network.

Connect to your building's assigned WiFi SSID. See reception if you do not know your building's WiFi SSID. Ethernet devices should be connected directly to a wall port.
