    which one of these is my MAC address ?

    i want to flash my bios and some people have had troubles where they had to maunally add the MAC address after they flashed, so i thought maybe i could find mine before i had the same troubles.

    so which one of these numbers do i write down ?

    i blured them because i don't want to get haxored, if that is possible

    You won't get haxored, you're behind a NAT router and nobody can see your WAN IP address anyways. The IP that shows is an internal private class C address, cannot connect to that from the internet.

    Because your computer shows
    1) A private IP address...192.168.xxx.xxx
    2) The same IP range...gateway, 192.168.1.1
    3) DHCP server also at that gateway address, 192.168.1.1

    It's easy stuff.

    Oh, and your ISP is Road Runner.

    Class C subnets...private IP addresses, share the first 3x octets. Home market broad routers have made 192.168.0.xxx and 192.168.1.xxx very common, although there are others, like Cisco..10.1.1.xxx.

    These are not public IP addresses, they cannot be. Your DNS servers in the above pic (how I know you use RR)..those are public IP addresses.
