Typed in the Run box "command" entered, then get a black DOS box with the following letters.
" C:\DOCUME~1 \PETER>-"
without the commas, the last hyphen is flashing so I key in (ipconfig /all)and enter, and I should get all my subnet number/ gateway number/and my ISP number, but I get nothing, what am I doing wrong, all help gratefully received.......Have to go out now until tomorrow morning.
I am running WinXP SP2 & all updates.

Type cmd not command

Start->Run and type cmd press enter
This will take you to MSDOS screen.
Now type ipconfig /all press enter

NOTE: There is a space between ipconfig and forward slash.

a difference whether 'CMD' or 'command' is typed. You'll just get the path displayed differently.

Make sure the window is maximised when you type. What type of internet connection do you have? Who is the ISP? If it is AOL for example thy do not use Windows Dial-up-networking which is why nothing would be shown...

I stand corrected. I am too set in my ways going back to Dos days. Just shows you are not too old to learn.
