MAC to IP | MAC to IPv6 & IPv4 Converter

Input 18:36:F3:98:4F:9A
Query MAC Address to IPV6 and IPV4
Local Link 1111:2222:3333:4444:1a36:f3ff:fe98:4f9a
IPv6 fe80::1a36:f3ff:fe98:4f9a


A mac address is 48 bits, an IPv6 address is 128 bits. Here’s MAC to IP conversion process step by step:

  1. take the mac address: for example 52:74:f2:b1:a8:7f
  2. throw ff:fe in the middle: 52:74:f2:ff:fe:b1:a8:7f
  3. reformat to IPv6 notation 5274:f2ff:feb1:a87f
  4. convert the first octet from hexadecimal to binary: 52 -> 01010010
  5. invert the bit at index 6 (counting from 0): 01010010 -> 01010000
  6. convert octet back to hexadecimal: 01010000 -> 50
  7. replace first octet with newly calculated one: 5074:f2ff:feb1:a87f
  8. prepend the link-local prefix: fe80::5074:f2ff:feb1:a87f
  9. done..!
