You didn't mention the OS, so there's two possibilities.

For DOS versions of Windows (Win9x/Me) you can type in "winipcfg" or something close to that (been a few years for me), and it will have it somewhere in the box that pops up.

On NT based systems (NT/2000/XP) type in "cmd" then "ipconfig" in the DOS Prompt that shows up. Why MS didn't simply supply winipcfg in these OS's is one of life's many little mysteries which probably has no satisfactory answer.

it would help to know OS because it can vary.

Wntipcfg.exe might work for you or you might have better luck with ipconfig.exe.

Your dialup monitor might show it even easier.
