    I am not sure exactly what you are asking. You type in cmd and hit enter to open a command window (dos screen) You then type in ipconfig /all (make sure you put a space between ipconfig and /all), and then what or what does not happen? Are you running Windows XP or Vista? (or an older OS)

Hi! Are you typing cmd in run (in start menu). If you want to check your ip address and can't see it through this way then open control panel, go to network connections, double click on local area network, then click on properties then click on internet protocol(tcp/ip) and then on properties tab, you would be able to see your ip add over there.

HOW TO CHANGE IP ADDRESS


To change your network IP address in Windows XP, Vista, or 7:
1. Press the Windows Key and R
2. Type command and press Enter. This loads your DOS prompt
3. Type ipconfig /release then press Enter. This disables your internet connection
4. Go to your desktop, and right-click on something called Network Place or My Network Places (If you're using Windows Vista or 7, look for the Network and Sharing Center through Control Panel)
5. Click Properties. You should now see something called Local Area Connection or something similar
6. Right-click on your connection (titled Local Area Connection if you're using an ethernet cable or Wireless Network Connection if you're on WiFi) and click Properties
7. Under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
8. A new window appears. On its own General tab, click the box beside Use the following IP address
9. Type in ones until you fill the box up (it should read 111.111.111.111)
10. Press Tab. You'll notice the Subnet Mask section automatically fill sup with numbers
11. Click OK
12. Click OK to bring you back to the "Local Area Connection" screen
13. Right-click Local Area Connection and Click on Properties again
14. Again, under the General tab, double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
15. Select Obtain an IP address automatically
16. Click OK
17. Click OK
18. Go back to your DOS prompt, type "ipconfig /renew" and press Enter. This restores your internet connection.
By now, the network should've assigned a new IP address to your computer automatically.

Need to reconfig router


Of course, if you just want to reset to the factory settings and start from there, look on the back of the router for a little button to depress. Hold that in for 10 seconds while powered on. When it reboots itself, it will have the original factory configurations and you can enter any settings desired.

I guess that you want the IP address for your computer, - ??

If thats the case, you write cmd in your "go" window.
when the DOS window has opend, you write IPconfig /all
this wil give you all the info you need for your computer.
- if that helped, do not forget to wote :-)
