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. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.18
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1


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