Windows 7: RUN ipconfig ?


17 Feb 2010   #1

RUN ipconfig ?

Hello,

Playing around with program(s) to determine my network usage via Comcast Broadband, and am a bit uncertain which Network Adapter is actually being used.

Anyway, it was suggested that I go to: RUN ipconfig/all to get the information.

When I do the RUN ipconfig/all, a black screen (like the old DOS ones) flashes for under a second.
Impossible to read it.

I also tries RUN ipconfig /all (with the space)
Same thing.

Anyone know how to keep this black screen, presumably with the info. I'm after from disappearing ?

Is the actual network adapter that is being used available anywhere else ?
I show 4 icons for them, and it is uncertain which is the actual active one.

I posted re this yesterday, and don't want to repeat the old posts, but if anyone has a free minute, they might want to look at them.

Thanks,
Bob

If you have more than one entry listed in ipconfig/all then its likely to be the one with a global ip address and dns servers.
