IP Address vs MAC Address, What is the Difference?

All devices in a computer network can connect and interact with one another. Of course, this is through the aid of a fast internet connection, like fiber internet. However, the topic of how one device would uniquely identify the other devices in the network constantly comes to our minds. The achievement of this can only be with the aid of the MAC and IP addresses.

Many people become confused while trying to understand the distinction between IP and MAC addresses. The main difference is that an IP address indicates your device’s location on the internet, whereas a MAC address identifies the device itself.

If you want to know more about these two concepts and the differences between the two, read on.

What is an IP Address?

The Internet Protocol address or “IP address” is a type of address used to communicate over the internet. It is a logical address that aids in the device’s network connection. An administrator or an Internet service Provider (ISP) assigns the device’s IP address.

The IP Address also identifies the connection of the device on the network. In fact, the assignment can be manual or dynamic. There are also two categories of IP addresses. IPv4 and IPv6 are the two versions of the Internet Protocol. IPv4 is the most widely used IP address type. It’s a four-byte 32-bit address. is a good illustration of this. A 128-bit address is used in the other version, IPv6.

What is a MAC Address?

The term “MAC address” refers to the Media Access Control Address. This address is provided to the computer by the manufacturer. As a result, each computer device has its own MAC Address. It aids in the identification of each gadget. The Physical Address is another name for it. The device’s Network Interface Controller (NIC) contains this address.

It’s a 48-bit hexadecimal number. The first three bytes represent the manufacturer, and the remaining three bytes describe the serial number of the NIC. 00:1B:63:84:45: E6 is one example of a MAC address. To deliver data to the target device in data transmission, the networking device switch validates the MAC address. In addition, the MAC address functions in the Data Link Layer, according to the Open System Interconnection (OSI) paradigm.

Importance of an IP address

The following are the benefits of using the Internet Protocol address:

  • Every device on a network has an IP address, which allows it to be located on that network.
  • It aids in the creation of a virtual link between a source and a destination.
  • An IP address is a numerical identification that is issued to each device connected to a computer network that employs the IP protocol for communication.
  • It also serves as a unique identifier for a certain computer on a network.
  • It allows you to select the addressing and packaging scheme’s technical format.

The Importance of a MAC address

The following are the benefits of utilizing a Media Access Control address:

  • It allows users to locate senders and recipients in the network in a secure manner.
  • The purpose of the MAC address is to prevent unauthorized network access.
  • Because the MAC address is unique, it’s use may be to trace the device.
  • The MAC address of a device is used by airport Wi-Fi networks to identify it.

How do I find my IP address is?

In Windows, you may get the IP address by using the following steps:

Step 1: Select “start” from the drop-down menu. Select the Start Menu Icon from the Start Menu Icon drop-down menu.

Step 2: In a “search” box, type the command prompt. Select the search result by clicking on it.

Step 3: Type “ipconfig” into the command prompt and hit enter. A field named IPv4 Address can be found.

How do I find my device’s MAC address?

In Windows, there is also a mechanism to find the MAC address.

Step 1: Select “start” from the drop-down menu. Select the Start Menu Icon from the Start Menu Icon drop-down menu.

Step 2: In a “search” box, type the command prompt. Select the search result by clicking on it.

Step 3: Type “cmd” into the command prompt. Press enter after typing ipconfig/all.

Step 4: The command’s output is shown. Scroll down and search for the values next to “Physical Address” to get the physical address of the wired or wireless adapter. This is the MAC address of your computer.

IP Address vs MAC Address

1. Number of Bytes

The IP Address is either an eight-byte or a six-byte one, while the MAC is a hexadecimal address of six bytes.

2. Use

The logical address of a computer is defined by the IP address. The fundamental purpose of a MAC address is also to guarantee that a device’s or computer’s physical address is known.

3. Assignment

The assignment of an IP address is by an administrator or an Internet Service Provider (ISP) , while the assignment of the MAC address of a device is by the manufacturer. Certainly, the MAC address cannot be changed; however, the IP address may be changed.

4. Protocol Used for Retrieval

The use of the  Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) protocol may be to obtain a device connected with an IP address. On one hand, the use of the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) may be to derive a device connected with a MAC address.

5. Operation

The IP address is also used largely at the network layer. Meanwhile, the data connection layer is where the MAC address is used the most.

6. Changes and Alterations

The IP address also changes throughout time and in response to changes in the environment. With the passage of time and changes in the environment, the MAC address, indeed, remains unchanged.

7. Third-Party Access

In front of any third party, the IP address remains hidden. The MAC address of a device can also be discovered by any third party.

8. Associated Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Layer

The Network Layer employs the IP address, while the Data Link Layer employs the MAC address.

Learn Now: What is an IP address and why does it matter?

Written by: Mitch De Guzman

You’ve probably heard the term “IP address” bandied about in tech and internet circles. Most people either glaze over or tune out when they hear that term. However, they are significant. Probably not in our day-to-day lives. But understanding them is critical for making the most of today’s technology, especially if you’re using fiber internet, which is becoming increasingly important.

Understanding networking fundamentals is the first step in learning about an IP address. Networking, on the other hand, is simply a method of connecting two or more devices to share data. But a network needs the former to function. Otherwise, we won’t be able to communicate or conduct any online activity, if we don’t have a virtual address.

Follow along in this article to learn why IP addresses are necessary and how you can use them to your advantage. Who can say? At the end of this post, you may have a better understanding of IP addresses.

What is an IP address?

It stands for an Internet Protocol address. Indeed, it is a unique identifier or string of numbers that your internet service provider assigns to track your online activities and location. It is an essential networking component and plays an integral role in web browsing.

Addressing is one of the fundamental aspects of networking. It is the process of assigning a unique identifier to each device on a network so that information can be routed correctly to and from them. If our devices did not have addresses, they would be unable to communicate with one another, much like if your phone didn’t have a number.

How does an IP address work?

Here’s an example of how IP addresses work. Before sending an email or surfing the web, you must connect to an internet-connected network like Gmail or Yahoo. To send an email to a destination address, you must have a fiber internet subscription from an internet service provider (ISP) like Streamtech, which will provide you with an IP address that will serve as your virtual return address.

What are the various types of IP addresses?

There are several different types of IP addresses. To avoid confusion, we’ll try to explain them as simply as possible.

Private IP address

Each device on your home network has a unique private IP address (also known as a local network or internal IP address) to make the devices communicate with one another. The IP address identifies each of these items separately. Consequently, all your gadgets (such as computers, mobile devices, smart TVs, and Bluetooth speakers) must recognize one another. For instance, you might want to cast a movie you’re watching on your phone onto your television. The network must first identify the device before you can proceed. In any case, these private addresses are hidden when you connect your devices to the internet using your router’s public IP address.

In addition, private IP addresses enable devices on the same network to communicate without connecting to the internet as a whole. That makes connecting to an external host or user more difficult, improving security within your home or company network. As a result, you can use a wireless connection to print documents from home, but your neighbor can’t. 

Public IP address

A public IP address is a primary address for your entire network. While each connected device has its own IP address, they are all part of your network’s main public IP address. Your internet service provider usually assigns a public IP address to your network router, which can be accessed directly via the internet. (If you’re curious, type “What’s my IP address?” into Google.) 

In addition, a public IP address is the exact same thing as an external IP address since they are both used for outgoing communications. However, only one router or network can use a public address at a time. If the address is dynamic, another router may use it after the lease expires. By the way, public IP addresses are classified into two types: dynamic and static.

Two kinds of public IP addresses

Dynamic IP address

A dynamic IP address is the one that your ISP allows you to use temporarily. In other words, it is the standard default setting provided by internet service providers and widely used on home networks. ISPs purchase a large block of IP addresses and assign one to each customer automatically. Then, they will change it periodically and recycle the old one for another customer. 

Dynamic addresses can change every 24 hours to seven days in other countries. However, in most cases in the Philippines, your router will renegotiate this lease before it expires.

Static IP address

Static IP addresses are those that do not change once assigned. In short, they are stationary until the network device is deactivated. They are often more expensive than standard dynamic addresses. In most cases, web servers and other network systems that get a lot of traffic are the ones that use static IP addresses. Although they can be assigned to specific devices, they can pose security risks if not configured correctly or supported by security protocols.

Additionally, not all ISPs provide static IP addresses, and keeping your static IP address secure will require some technical knowledge.

IP Addresses for Websites

There are two types of website IP address options that you may encounter if you decide to start a website and use a web hosting service provider.

Shared IP Address

Sharing a web server with other sites is the most common hosting plan that website owners choose. However, your website will be one of the hundreds of different websites on the same server with the shared hosting plan. It may work out well for websites that don’t have a lot of visitors yet or don’t have many files or pages on the site. However, if you intend to expand your business, it is preferable to obtain a unique IP address.

Using a shared IP address has drawbacks, particularly when another website abuses it. While it is rare, there is a chance that your website will be added to the blacklist, and emails associated with your domain will end up in spam folders. 

A Dedicated IP Address

A dedicated IP address serves as your domain’s web address. No other realm can use this address because it is unique to a single website.

Apart from avoiding possible blacklisting due to other users’ bad behavior on your server, it enables you to access your website solely via the IP address rather than the domain name. The good thing about this is that you can use it to build and test your website before you buy a domain name for it. Additionally, it enables you to access your website while waiting for your domain transfer.

While a dedicated IP address is no longer required, it simplifies obtaining an SSL certificate for your website. That’s important because Google places a premium on security. 

And finally, a dedicated IP address lets you run your file transfer protocol (FTP) server, making sharing and transferring files with multiple people within an organization more manageable. It also allows anonymous FTP sharing. 

The two versions of IP addresses

After defining the various types of IP addresses, let us examine the two distinct versions.


Internet Protocol Version 4 is the most widespread IP address. It’s also the first version of the Internet Protocol address using a string of numbers separated by dots into four groups, known as “dotted-decimal notation.” An IPv4 address appears as follows:

Moreover, IPv4 employs a 32-bit address scheme that allows for the storage of more than 4 billion addresses.

We now have IPv6 to prevent us from running out of IPv4 addresses. Internet Protocol Version 6 has a more comprehensive range of addresses than its predecessor. Additionally, it’s known as IPng, which stands for Internet Protocol Next Generation.

While IPv4 has a 32-bit address, IPv6 has a 128-bit address written in four hexadecimal digits. Instead of periods, it uses colons to separate the numerical and alphabetical sections of the address. Here’s how an IPv6 address will appear. 

2001:4451:456a:1500:51c9:ec22: c778: de16

It will take years to complete the IPv4 to IPv6 switchover. Beside, not all networks support IPv6, and most devices still use IPv4. However, some large network providers and internet service providers (ISPs) have adopted IPv6 while keeping an alternate IPv4 address. 

Virtual Private Networks (VPN)

Although VPNs are not a type of IP address, it is essential to discuss them nonetheless. A virtual private network (VPN) provides online privacy and anonymity by converting a public internet connection into a private network. A VPN hides internet protocol addresses, making your online activities virtually untraceable. Most importantly, VPN services provide greater security and encryption than even the most secure Wi-Fi network. Thus, it aids in the prevention of identity theft. So, if you are concerned about your online security and privacy, you should consider using a VPN service.

What’s a subnet mask?

A subnet mask functions similarly to the address of your internet protocol, except it is only used within a network. Routers use subnet masks to transport data packets to the correct destination. On the other hand, data packets traversing the internet do not contain subnet masks. Instead, they only have the destination IP address, which a router matches with a subnet. Subnetting can save large networks with millions of connected devices so much time by getting data faster to the correct device.

How to locate your public IP address

The simplest method is to Google your public IP address. However, it will not reveal your ISP (internet service provider) or location. Another way is by using the Windows command prompt tool. Here’s how to find your external IP address using Windows search.

1. Click the “Start” button and type “cmd.”

2. Then, in the resulting pop-up box or Command Prompt window , type nslookup, and press “Enter.”

Using the same steps, you can also find your wifi network address. However, instead of the previous command, type “ipconfig” in the resulting pop-up box and press Enter. The number assigned to “Default Gateway” is your router’s IP address.

Click here for a step-by-step guide to finding your home IP address.

Can a person be tracked thru their IP address?

While the addresses of your IP route internet traffic to your computer, they do not reveal your location. Someone who obtains your such may discover your ISP, but they will not be able to pinpoint your precise location.

In some cases, they may locate the city you are in or a nearby city, but they will not know your physical or home address. While strangers may not find you, your ISP knows your location. They also keep a record of your internet activity. However, they will not disclose your personal information to anyone, as they guarantee to protect you and your privacy.

There is one notable exception, tho, and it involves law enforcement. Suppose you engage in illegal activities or are subjected to cyber threats. In that case, a law enforcement agency can obtain a court order or search warrant and submit it to your ISP to get your information.
