What does computer command "ipconf/release" do?

This command will flush the IP address from an active connection. The correct syntax is ipconfig /release *con* which will release all connections. If you just want to see if you can get a new address then use ipconfig /renew

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.

  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.

  2. Click Run... on this menu.

  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.

  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).

  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.

  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

How to set up password for the router


You should connect your computer to the router with an ethernet cord.

1.Click on Start - accessories - command prompt.

2. On the command prompt, type ipconfig look for the default gateway. Take note of the number found in default gateway.

3. Open Internet Explorer then type the number from the default gateway in the address bar.

A window will pop up and will ask for he username and password. By default, username: admin sometimes they leave it as blank and the password: password sometimes it uses admin as the password.

Keep me posted.
