You type cmd in the Run box and then ipconfig /all at the command prompt.

However you will no have a static IP address it will be dynamic which means it will sporadically change.

I have noticed something and that is whenever I run VoG™'s link or carry out bremner's RUN commands I *always* get an IP address that begins with 195 so would I be right in thinking that this first IP address number is linked to your ISP and never changes unless you change ISP's?


In my case my ISP is AOL.

Do you have a router?

Sorry didn't read your post properly.

click here for a list of AOL addresses. You will see there are various IP Ranges for AOL.

An ISP is assigned a range.

No router. TR

Sorry my pointless question was to Curlywhirly

Sorry about the delay.
No I don't have a router but a USB ADSL modem.

If you type your IP address into click here it should confitm that you are with AOL!
