how can i find mac address

i'm using gentoo

Is there a way to find the mac address and address of my modem and pcmcia network cards?

the reason i ask is when i do ifconfig eth0 i get

Link encap: Ethernet hwaddr 00:0D:88:27:c5:BA
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

base addressx2000

i can't ping internally or the outside world.. I'm wondering why
