    this is winxp pro, my adapter is built into the motherboard, 3com/3c940, i think i used a standard xp install/configure, it was a while ago. see below for ipconfig display. is there some way to switch it back to a non-hex display? not the mac address, that is what it is, but the ip, dns etc?
    thanks bob

    thanks, just to double check this. since i'm xp pro with sp2, etc, looks like i'd use the uninstall option in network connections for the ms version 6 option. that has always been there, but unused, ie, it is unchecked. i'm using the old 'Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)' option.
    so even though the version 6 option is not being used, it still influences the output format of ipconfig?
    also if i am therefore eliminating some components of the IPv6 that are somehow being used even though not selected, am i losing some beneficial features of IPv6?
    thanks again, bob

    You don't need IPv6.
    I usually just uninstall it from the cmd line on most PC's I encounter, but that is just me. I am old school with stuff like that.

    ok thanks again, ipv6 is gone, and ipconfig is readable again. still think thats weird that something that is 'installed' but not activated would affect some plain text on such a basic tool as ipconfig, but whatever, just my .02
