All electronic devices that connect to the Internet or to a network---including a Toshiba E Studio 600 computer---are assigned a MAC address that uniquely identifies the network card that they possess. This MAC address is used primarily for internal routing purposes on a network, as well as to direct traffic to network devices (such as routers) and standalone devices that are attached to the Internet at large. If you need to find out what your Toshiba's MAC address is, you can do so with the command prompt in your operating system.
