Are you having trouble diagnosing network issues on your Chromebook? Do you need to connect to a web management interface or transfer data to an FTP server or NAS drive? If so, you’ll need to know your Chromebook’s IP and MAC addresses. In this post, we’ll show you how to find them.

First, let’s define what IP and MAC addresses are. When your Chromebook connects to a wired or wireless network, it acquires an IP address, which uniquely identifies it on that network. This address is usually dynamically allocated but can also be manually assigned. A MAC address, on the other hand, is assigned to your Chromebook at the factory and is linked to its network interface. Unlike the IP address, the MAC address doesn’t change.

To find your Chromebook’s IP and MAC addresses, you’ll need to be connected to a network. This can be a Wi-Fi or wired ethernet network. Once you’re connected, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app. You can do this by clicking on the gear icon in the taskbar or searching for “Settings” in the app launcher.

2. Click on “Network” in the left panel.

3. If you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, click on “Wi-Fi” under the Network section. If you’re connected to mobile data, or a wired ethernet via an adapter, you’ll see the corresponding option instead.

4. Select the network you’re connected to. Your IP address will be displayed under the network name.

5. Scroll down to find your MAC address. It will be listed in alpha-numeric format.

That’s it! Now you know how to find your Chromebook’s IP and MAC addresses. Remember, these addresses are essential for diagnosing network issues and connecting to web management interfaces, FTP servers, and NAS drives.
