IP Address : the ip address of the computer
Default gateway :the Ip Address


Start Windows Vista and log on to your account. If you are the sole user of the computer then your computer will automatically load to your account, and you will have administrator privileges in order to check or change an IP address.

Step 2
Check to make sure that you have an active connection to the Internet. You cannot check an IP address using Windows Vista without having access to the Internet.

Step 3
Head to the website to determine your current IP address (see Resources below). Once the web page loads, you will automatically see a display of your current IP address.

Step 4
Alter your IP address manually by using the Windows Vista Network and Sharing Center. Click "Start" then "Control Panel" and double-click on the "Manage network connections" link.

Step 5
Click the "Network" tab. You will see that Windows Vista is set to "Automatically assign an IP address."

Step 6
Click the "Use the following IP settings." This will allow you to change the settings to your own specific needs.

Step 7
Enter all of the required IP information, including the IP address, Subnet mask and Default gateway. The system administrator and/or the network administrator will have this information.

Step 8
Click "OK" once you have finished.


Navigate to and click on your "start" button. Scroll up the options to "Run" and right click on it. A new window will open and in the white bar you should type "CMD".

Step 2
Click "OK" and the window will disappear, and a new one will open. At the top this window will say: "C:/Windows/System32/cmd.exe" if you have done this correctly. Navigate into the black window under the directory that is shown last. For example: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner/.

Step 3
Type in "IPConfig" after the last forward slash in this line and press enter. This will generate a list of information for you to look at.

Step 4
Look under the heading "Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection" for the IP Address listed. For example, an IP address should have 4 sets of numbers like The number on this line is the only number associated with your specific IP address


Step 1

There are several different ways to access your IP address. One is through the Windows Command Prompt interface. To access this interface click "Start" > "All Programs" > "Accessories" > "Command Prompt."

Or, you can click "Start" > and then type CMD into the Search box and hit "Enter."

Step 2

A black windows with a prompt will appear. It will look something like: C:\Users\username>. At the prompt, type "ipconfig" without the quotes, and hit "Enter."

Step 3

The window will display a long list of information. Look for IP4 Address. You will see a numerical representation that looks something like this: This is your internal IP address that is used to communicate with your local network.

Step 4

If you don't want to use the command line interface, you can also find your IP address by going to Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center, and clicking on "Change adapter settings" at the top left.

Step 5

Double-click on your "Wireless Network Connection" or "Local Area Connection," depending on which you are using.

Step 6

On the Connection window that pops up, click on the "Details" button.

Step 7

Look for the IPv4 Address. -- Computer


Look for the IPv4 Default Gateway -- Router

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

HP 1312 printer running wirelessly from a laptop (Windows 7). Has always worked fine. Turned printer off when we were on vacation; now printer is "offline." Have reinstalled printer driver and...


The problem you described can have multiple causes.

But one is more common:

Every device on your home network (wired or wireless) has its own IP adress. Usualy this IP adress is given automatically by the DHCP server contained in your wireless router. When a device is turned off for some time, it can receive when turned on again another IP adress than before.
So, if your printer has no static IP adress (entered by yourself during printer setup), it is very likely that it has now other IP than the address known by your computer. The computer sends the print jobs to the old adress and of course, nothing is printed.

Please check in your printers proprieties the adress of the TCPIP port assigned tom it, and also check on your router's management site what clients are connected to it.
The network communication between the computer and the printer can be checked by issuing a PING command from a command prompt.
e.g ping 192.168.1.***
the numbers are one example of an IP adress.

Please let me know if it helped, if you need more help ask again, I'll be glad to help you to get the problem solved.

Wireless shows connection,but will not connect.

This kind of problem occur due to dhcp disable in the wireless router for the security purpose. So try to give the ip adress manually by right clicking on the wireless and give the ip adress of the same range in which your network in working e.g is the range of your ip addresses so please select the ip which is not been used by any other computer and than in default gateway enter the ip address of you wireless router and you will be able to access the internet on your system.
