Specs: Windows XP, 512ram(...)

I know my external ip from ipchicken.com and the run>cmd>ipconfig dosn;'t seem to work. I know internal ip's are like 192.xxx.xxx.x but all i get is a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0 and my external ip i already know? How do i fix my ipconfig (and/or) find my internal ip.

You only have an "internal" IP if you are beghind a router (in which case the router gets the IP from the provider). Otherwise, your PC will get the IP from the provider.

"I know internal ip's are like 192.xxx.xxx.x" Not necessarily. What exactly does ipconfig show? Can you post the information?

Again, you only have an internal IP address if you have some device on your network that is translating the external address to your internal address. Since your PC is showing your external address via IPCONFIG, that shows you don't have any such device. If you did your PC woulldn't even be aware of the external address.

So, your IP is 74.70.157.204. Your subnet mask shows correctly at 255.255.240.0, not 255.0.0.0 as you stated in your original post. There's nothing to fix. :)

lol i just did that to my system recently; this website helps a lot http://portforward.com
although i don't think you need to port forward as you don't have a router
