how do I find my IP address on my network computer

  knobler 13:18 19 Feb 2004

I have just set up a wireless network and need to find out the IP address of each computer (mac address I think they call it!!!!)

One computer runs on ME and the other on XP

I need the different addresses so that I can configure the firewalls on each computer so that there are conflicts etc.....

Thanks in advance.

I've never used Win ME but if it's the same as Win98 then I don't know if ipconfig works with it. If this is the case then go to Start, Run, and type winipcfg. You don't need to open the command prompt for this one as it's Windows based. However, winipcfg won't work on your XP machine.

By the way. Ip address and Mac address are two different things. The Mac address is the physical address of the network card.

AS Eric10 says winipcfg on win98 will show IP and mac address once adaptor is chosen form list. Note the mac address coz you may need to enter it on your router web utility when cloning mac addresses.
