going to a dos prompt (command Prompt) on your computer and typing in ipconfig and hitting enter will get you that info.

Better yet, it will tell you what Gateway you are on, as well your subnet mask. It will tell you this information regarding your own network connections, as well as when you are connected to the internet.

Go here for more info concerning this usefull little tool, which is included in at least Win98 and up!

I just tried both ways website and dos-prompt.
Neither IP address, subnet Mark nor Default Gateway report the same number as the website's one! why?

The one on the web page could be showing the IP address of a computer at your ISP, your proxy, firewall, or router.

Thanks guys, both sem to work. However both also whizz past all the info. Dos used to allow you to scroll the screen or display it with the extensions /p or /w but this doesn't seem to work.

I'll keep experimenting.

Dingus,

even though running the command is possible through Start, Run I find that it scrolls all the info too afst to see for me as well.

I open a DOS window by using a shortcut to it with the properties set to C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM

or you can run command at the Start, Run

This will open a window that you can run the ipconfig command in.

Randy that done it perfect without scrolling. A much better way.

Stoner thanks but that doesn't give enough info, but thanks anyway for your suggestion. By the way, I would find out what your nickname means in Scotland, I think you might change it.

Another problem solved. :D
