Fire up a DOS prompt and type in "ipconfig" and you should have your IP address listed. You can also find it in the status property sheet for your network connection.

'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file.

That is the message I get when typing in "ipconfig"

Go to control panel, networks, Local Area Connection, Support. You will find your IP address and other details listed there.

If that is the error message you get...

In reply to: RE:

then for some reason the command prompt you are running the command from has a problem with the environment.

It could also be because you are not using Windows XP (although this is the XP forum you didn't state your OS and Win (x users have asked questions here in the past) and older Win 9X used winipcfg.

It might even be that someone has deleted the file.

Assuming you do have Win XP (or 2000 or NT which all had ipconfig) go here and download the Microsoft Wntipcnfg utility (a GUI version and although the link is for Windows 2000 it originated in the NT resource kit and also works fine on XP Home or Pro):

With XP you can also check the IP-address via "Network Connections" by displaying the "Status" of a connection ( right-click the connection icon near the clock on your taskbar, pop-up menu select Status).

Other methods here

I do suggest you discover what actually happened to your ipconfig.exe file though.

How did you get to the DOS prompt?

In reply to: RE:

If you are using Windows XP, you need to go to Start > Run, type in ''cmd'', (without the quotes), then type in ipconfig and press Enter

Or did you do that already?

got to run type in cmd (okay or enter) then in the DOS box type in ipconfig. I sometimes cut to another place and leave out things too. Darrell Lewis
