type in cmd [enter]

this will open the dos window

How d i ipconfig on computer

On your keyboard you have a button that looks like the Windows logo - We call it the start button.

1: Hold the start button down and then click the 'R' key.
2: Then you will see a box pop up, type 'cmd' and press enter.
(If your keyboard doesn't have this for some reason, go to your start menu and type 'cmd' and click enter (without ''))
(In windows XP you would have to go to the start menu, all programs, accessories, command prompt)

3: Command Prompt window is open.
(Black background and white writing)

4: Type 'ipconfig' and press enter.

5: DONE!

Wireless is on but does not see any connections

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.


PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>



Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Two computers have the same IP address

On either computer:

Get a dos prompt, by clicking start, run and type in cmd.

In the dos window type in "ipconfig /release" then "ipconfig /flushdns" and finally "ipconfig /renew". This should give the computer a new IP address.

If these steps fail due to some error popping up, reboot the computer into Safe Mode with Network, If you are still having the IP issue, run the dos window again and try the same commands. Then reboot the computer back to normal windows.

Hope this helps

A computer on my network has the same IP address; this causes a conflict.

This will cause one of the pc's not be able to get online. each one of ip's is unique. First this will need little knowledge if the ip's addresses are assigned manually. If not, rebooting the pc most times resolves the issue. If this does not work you need to open you command prompt which can be done by clicking on start and clicking on run on XP, clicking on start and typing cmd in to search in the bottom whith the little magnifing glass and it will pop up towards the top of that same window(it will say ether cmd.exe or command window. Once you see the cmd.exe do a right click on it and click run as administrator. this will work for vista or windows 7 any versions. once a black box opens just type in where cursor is blinking "ipconfig/release" and press enter. once you see the blinking cursor just type in "ipconfig/renew" and give it a minute to connect. When you type in this command do not type the " sign just words. ipconfig commands are same for windows xp, vista and windows 7. Hope this helps.
