A local area connection is activated in every system by default when Windows is being set up. The network adapter is given a connection to which the Internet can be accessed and browsed. A user can enter several LANs through the Network Connection folder and Set up LAN utility. This creates and activates local area connection in a system. My connection is fine as all other devices are okay. I use wifi and don't have a cable to connect with. I ran ipconfig/renew in CMD as recommended in another post, and got a message that: Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection. 4 media disconnected and Ethernet adapter bluetooth network connection media disconnected. For your wired MAC address, look for a section labeled 'Ethernet Adapter Local Network Connection.' There may be more than one Local Area Connection. If so they will be labeled Local Area Connection 2, Local Area Connection 3, etc. Your MAC address is labeled 'Physical Address', and is a 12 character alpha numeric string.
