Open a command prompt window (ie: Start >> Run >> type cmd and hit Enter) and perform the following command:

ipconfig /all

Once you've finished, copy/paste the output into a response on here so we can have a look.

For info on how to copy/paste from a command prompt window click on my name above and read my "how-to" guide titled, "Post the output of ipconfig (version 2)"

This is what came up when I followed your instructions. "Not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I hate when that happens!

By default, the ipconfig tool should be available on an XP based computer.

If it's not too much bother, please try again. This time after opening the command prompt window change to the System32 folder as per the command below:

cd \windows\system32 (Enter)

Once completed successfully your command prompt should look as follows:


C:\WINDOWS\system32>

Once there, then issue the following command:

ipconfig /all

and it should work.
