The virus can not get your Ip address ..the issue may be that you did not installed the LAN card driver ..After you install all the drivers ..just try again ..cause with dsl modem you do not have a static Ip address but you just obtain one automatically so ...after you install the driver for the LAN card ..just reset the modem and run the disk that you have from the provider with the settings for the modem ..or call them to advice for the settings ..if they did not provided a disk with automate settings ..
the LAN card needs no further settings but just in case you have a static Ip address..in your case I think you have to leave it like that cause by default it is set to obtain an Ip address automatically ..
If the the modem never been unplugged or something like that it will work after you install the LAN card ..
either use the drivers for your motherboard is the card is on board ..or look for the disk with your lan card driver ..

How do i find information about my address and port?


im guessing here you mean your ip addess and open ports on your computer right ??

ok firstly your computer uses 3 ip address
  1. loop back ,, 127.0.0.1 (slandered) for all computers , this is used for internal progressing and phrasing.
  2. a local ip address ,,This ip vaires what it is basically is the ip address given to your computer by your router ,, its the address that the router recgonises as your computer , so different computers connected to the same router have differect local address.. it usually starts with 192.168.XXX.XXX or 10.0.X.X
  3. Foreign / Internet Ip address, no matter what type of router this address varies for each router!!!!!. lets say you have 7 computer on the same router , each will have the same foreign address but different local address's.
PORTS !!!
will ports are used for different things for example web surfing is port 80, ftp is 21, different software uses cretin ports to allow computers to different machines over the internet or other network to interface with them directly..

Hope i explained all that simply,, well here is how you get the info u need..in all Operating systems the process is a bit different here i will outline 2 ways each,, for XP and for win vista / win 7.. ok lets get started..

XP..

to determine local ip address,,
  • click start , control panel
  • network / internet connections / network connections
  • double click on local area connection or what ever name u see..
  • click support,, there you go see your ip.. click details for more info
alternate method
  • double click on the network connection icon to the buttom right of your screen.. follow last step above

  • click start then run
  • type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all and hit enter
that will list all the info about your connection for you..

ok ports in win XP

click start then run,, type cmd and hit enter
type netstat - n

that will list all ports / ip address that they are connection too..
the ports that you see are the open ports.. there is an alternat method to see it in the windows firewall setting but i did not list it since its most incomplete,, background processes dont show up there ,, like a virus..

skip to foreign address !!! BELOW

ok vista...or windows 7

start control panel
network
manage network connection / view or edit network connections
double click on local area network click support if necessary ,, you will see your ip address there (LOCAL)

  • OR ,, click start, in the run box type cmd and hit enter
  • type ipconfig /all hit enter
  • that will list your local address among other things..
PORTS ,, VISTA / WIN 7
click start
in the run box type cmd and hit enter
type netstat -n and hit enter,,
this will list all open ports and the ip address that they are connected to..


FOREIGN ADDRESS
this is easy.. go to http://www.whatismyip.com the address that shows up is your foreign address..

well I hope thats a Fixya, or at least a very helpful after all that typing it would be sad if i didnt answer your question or was wrong abou what you wanted to know.. good luck and let me know if you need any more help..

I need to add IBM Infoprint 1116 to my home network using IP address. How can I change already setted IP and gatway addresses on it to needed?


If you know ip address of printer then you can access your printer with web interface for that type your printer ip address in internet explorer address bar.
then you can access configuration of printer.
But if you don't know ip then you need to check network configuration menu of printer .
For that press menu button of printer then enter in network settings then you can know the printer ip address.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

AT either desktop or laptop:

[Start]
[Run]

A dark "DOS" windows will appear
At the prompt, type: ipconfig

Note the "IP Address" (probably 192.168.1.2)
type: ipconfig /renew
press [ENTER]
Note the IP Address
If it has changed, then you are ok. Type: exit and press [ENTER]
If it did not change, then try this on the other computer.

If that didn't change either, the go to the Control Panel
[Network Settings]
Find the wireless or wired network adapter and Right-Click
Choose "Prpoerties"
In the Properties window, double-click "IP Address"
See the IP Address assigned? change the last digit by one number.
Example: if the IP Address is 192.168.1.2 then change to 192.168.1.3

It should work now...

HOW DO I BLOCK AN IP?...IM GETING HACKED, IT WONT STOP


The easiest means to block IP addresses in Windows XP is to use Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) filtering rules. The primary reason to block IP addresses is to protect your computer from network-based threats, such as computer worms, viruses and other malware. To block IP addresses in Windows XP, you will need to activate and configure IPSeccmd, the firewall that comes bundled with Windows XP. IPSeccmd does not come preinstalled with XP on your computer. It can be found on Disk 2 of your service pack upgrade or downloaded from Microsoft directly.



  1. Install IPSeccmd from your Window's XP Service Pack 2 installation disk.
  2. Step 2 Open the Command Prompt on your computer by selecting "Start > Run" from the primary file menu and type the word "cmd" in the blank text field that appears.
  3. Step 3 Enter the following command at the DOS command prompt to block a specific communication type (UDP or TCP) and port number on your computer:
    "IPSeccmd.exe -f [*=0:PortNumber:Protocol]
  4. Step 4 Open the user interface for IPSeccmd on your desktop, and select the "General" tab under the "Policy" section. Choose the "IP Block" option and enter the specific IP address of the host(s) that you desire to block. Exit the application when complete.

I have a 30H4054 and need to change the IP address


After moving to a new location that had a new IP address, I found I was unable to change the IP address within the 30H4054 so we took the printer back to where it was installed and working before and someone changed the IP address there then brought it back to my new location. So ....have the IP address changed before you move.

How to connect a laptop having vista home basic with a xp desktop


Be advised that,
it makes not different to connect one PC/Laptop to another one via LAN because when you connect your system in lan networking you system will be automatically detected if LAN has been set up through a server.
And if not you need to do manually by assigning ID address on bot PC/Laptop.
For that,
first assign an IP address in either Laptop or desktop (IP address must be same category)
ex.
192.168.1.231 (first one)
and second one should be
192.168.1.here you can up (instead of 231) any number excep 0 but make sure not confliction between other system. means not duplication IP address on same LAN.
once you ae done with IP assigning
Go to
Star>Run>command and hit enter
once you see command prompt then
type there:
ipconfig and hit enter (it shows your ip address) if you wanna have more info then type ipconfig/all
once you are done with this then
you need to ping to your next PC.
for that
type in
ping 192.168.1.231 (means you need to type another PC's IP address here)
and hit etner
if you see like on image
then you are good to go.

Hi,
The first thing I would do is check to make sure the desktop with XP has the network card set to "obtain an IP address automatically"

if it is set to obtain an ip address automatically, I need to know the following:

What is the IP addresss of the router?
What is the IP address of the Vista computer?
What is the IP address of the xp computer?

You can find the ip address by going to start, then run, then type cmd and hit enter. at a command prompt type: ipconfig and hit enter.
