    Hi all

    So I have 2 pc in my home, both connected wirelessly to my router. I pick up the share folders on both, but I would like to chat through DOS.

    I need to find out what my other computers IP is.

    I did type CMD in run
    and then ipconfig, but it gives me the IP of the router/modem

    Any idea what it is? Or how I can find out? Thanks :)

    Start, Run, CMD <enter>

    In the command prompt type: PING <computer name>

    <computer name> is the machine name for the computer you want the IP address is.

    If you typed IPCONFIG, on the computer in question, you got something like this:

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . :
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

    The IP Address is the computer's IP address.
    The Default Gateway is the router's base address.
