    Are you referring to the ethernet address (also called the mac address) ?

    Under Windows, at the command prompt, type:

    ipconfig /all

    the mac address is listed under "Physical address".

    If you are refering to Mac address, then go to Start->Run..->type "cmd"->press "ok"->type "ipconfig /all".

    Look for Physical address.

    Then a macintosh desktop is called a Mac Pro or iMac then. Macintosh is the generic name of apple computers.

    thanks guys for your advise and sorry for not making myself clear.

    I'm not using a Macintosh, I'm referring to the mac id which is required
    if I'm tagging on to my family's wireless network via the wireless router.

    Tot it's a cult thingy among apple users to usually refer it as a Mac book instead of a laptop.
