How to find the MAC address of a device from its IP address

During a ping the IP address must be resolved to the physical MAC
address. As a result your computer keeps a physical address
translation table called an ARP table.

From a command prompt ping the IP address. After the ping has completed type
arp -a
This will list all the IP addresses and corresponding Physical
addresses that have been resolved
