MAC address lookup

By using the field above you can find a MAC address vendor using either an MAC address or vendor name. You only need the first 6 first chars to make a search, those are the vendor specific chars. NetLookup supports all known formats of an MAC address, so you just enter the MAC address from your application into the searchfield to make a lookup.
Other formats are also available, see the list below.

What is NetLookup?

NetLookup is a free service aimed towards computer networking professionals. The goal is to provide an easy interface to a multitude of different databases, presenting the data in a format that is fast to read.
To use the service, simply input the query in the field above. The search engine will automatically understand what kind of data it is and do a proper search based on the input.
Queries formatted as a MAC address will be treated as such. If it looks like an IP (both IPv4 and IPv6), all data will be fetched from the appropriate RIR. Finally, if it's a domain name all registrant data will be fetched from the registrar.

New BGP feature!

If you lookup an IP-address using the field above, our software will check if the network is listed in the global BGP table.
Some routes are still missing in our routingtable, but please let me know if you like this feature and if you have any ideas what the BGP table could be used for. Hope you'll enjoy it!

How do I use the search engine?

To use NetLookup, simpy type in your query in the search bar at the top. The search engine will process the input and present the data.
Supported types are:
