That should return an IP address (verified and it does) Remember there is a space between ipconfig" " /all. You really dont even need the /all switch, either way your doing it right. Just out of curiosity why do you need to know your IP Addres.

Still no luck> I tryed a space after ipconfig /all All it says is Windows IP configuration To answer your question why I need the IP address is to put into my router. I'm adding this laptop. Any other possibilities to get the address?

If you have to i would just give the computer a static IP address (One that you set and not one that you comp gets from the router see DHCP).

If you are getting nothing from Iipconfig then either network isn't enabled or you haven't got the necessary network drivers installed. You need to sort that out first.

Wanamingo setting a static ip does not address the issue at hand.

You would only set a static ip if troubleshooting dhcp issues to separate getting a ip vs connectivity.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

What is the status of the adapter shown in Device Manager?

Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Device Manager -> Network Adapters. Right click, select properties, and the first tab shows device status.
