I have just purchased a Sammy NC10.
How can I find out the wi-fi MAC address so that I can set up my wireless router.
Thank youJanuary 6, 2009 at 10:19 pm #178795mossmotorsportMember
you should be able to go into the start menu, accessories, system tools, and command prompt (sorry if im wrong not running xp atm) and if you type in “ipconfig/all” it should display all the information you need to know – if I can remember correctly that is….January 6, 2009 at 10:19 pm #178793AlfiharParticipant
Open up the command line.
1) Start > Run
2) enter and run:Code:cmd
3)Then type the following into the command line and press enter:Code:ipconfig /all
edit: hah mossmotorsport beat me to it, I’m also not on Windows but the instructions look right. Also welcome to the forum.January 6, 2009 at 10:23 pm #178796mossmotorsportMember
I thought I might be onto something there… im pleased my memory isnt as bad I was expecting – I thought I might get flamed down within a few minutes hahaJanuary 6, 2009 at 11:34 pm #178791adatay92Member
Welcome to the site hunsbury0.
When running ipconfig /all make sure you get the MAC address of the Wireless LAN adaptor and not the LAN adaptor as they will both be listed.January 7, 2009 at 12:58 am #178787
Welcome hunsbury0. 🙂January 7, 2009 at 10:20 pm #178798
Thank you all. It is up & running now with help received here.
I have noticed a small pin hole & a mark (looks like a scratch?) near top left of the delete key. The mark looks like a “mike” symbol. Please tell me this normal & not a scratch.
I am also after a manbag to carry this. The criteria is:
It should be light weight & able to protect the NC10 from slight movement shocks.
should have shoulder strap
Only big enough to carry the NC10 on its own ( do not require any extra space for eg mains charger etc as I will only carry it out with the battery fully charged)
How can I install something to open WORD, EXCELL etc?
I have microsoft office on a CD, is just easy as cut & paste to a USB memory stick & will install from the stick? or do I have take some extra steps to enable to do this?January 7, 2009 at 10:48 pm #178792adatay92Member
You’re right in thinking it looks like a “mic” symbol – it is! The pinhole is where the internal microphone is located.
See this excellent thread here for lots of suggestions for carrying cases for the NC10.
Copying and pasting from the CD onto a USB stick and installing Office from there will work. You could also try a free alternative such as OpenOffice which is compatible with Microsoft Office files (even the latest 2007 .docx .xlsx and .pptx).January 7, 2009 at 11:41 pm #178797bkitoMember
Hi hunsbury0, I’m new too but I thought I’d give you a welcome as well. This is a great place to find answers isn’t it!?!January 8, 2009 at 9:33 am #178786January 8, 2009 at 5:31 pm #178799
Yes, this is a superb site for sammy owners.
Once again thank you for the tips.
I have noticed that the CAPS LOCK key does not have have a light to indicate whether it is on or not. What is the best way of knowing the status of that key?
RegardsJanuary 8, 2009 at 7:05 pm #178788
There is an LED that indicates the status of the caps lock – it’s second from the left on the little row at the front of the NC10. 🙂January 9, 2009 at 9:04 pm #178800

Is there any where that shows what all the led lights , jack sockets are for or a picture pointing to & giving what is what for the leds & all ports?
I had a look at the pdf manual on the desktop,but failed to find it.

This link goes straight to the download for the manual (13Mb). It’s an exe file that loads it up in Flash.
I’m afraid I can’t remember where it is on the NC10 as I think I uninstalled it quite a while ago.
If you don’t want to download the file, here’s a quick rundown of the LEDs numbered from left to right:
2) Caps Lock
3) Scroll Lock
4) Hard Disk Drive
5) Wireless LAN
6) Charge Indicator
Green: Battery fully charged or on mains power
Amber: Battery is charging (unit is off)
Off: Running on battery
7) Power Indicator
On: NC10 is on
Blinking: NC10 in sleep mode
And these are the ports – Left side, left to right:
1) Power Socket
2) Ethernet Port
3) Fan Vents
4) 2 USB Ports
On the right side of the NC10, left to right:
1) Headphone Jack
2) Microphone Jack
3) USB Port
4) VGA Output
There’s also a Kensington lock port next to the power button. The built-in microphone is situated just above the Insert key.
Hope this helps. 🙂January 9, 2009 at 10:54 pm #178794AlfiharParticipant
Don’t forget the hidden memory card reader, on the front right under the “SD” text (just under the silver part).
