Showing IP address

Threaded View


Bored and let unused icon cleaner clean desktop.

Had a command or program that placed a shortcut on desktop that would
show your IP address and all other details for networking.

I've forgotten it, can't find it in my XP tips file, so hoping someone
would be kind enough to help me out.

I can do ipconfig for XP but this was something like winipcfg for W98
that would give a neat little window.

Thanks in advance.

Microsoft's website.         wntipconfig.exe

Bah.  ipconfig is for wimps.  
Real command line junkies (like me) use netsh.  Try:

  Start -> run -> cmd <enter>
  netsh interface ip show
  netsh interface ip show address
  netsh interface ip show dns

There's a bunch of goodies that Vista added to netsh including
wireless diagnostics.  See Section 5:

  netsh wlan show
  netsh wlan show all
  netsh wlan show networks MODE=BSSID

That might only be helpful for static addresses.

"show address   - Displays IP address configuration."

"Configuration for interface "AR5211-WiFi"
    DHCP enabled:                         Yes
    InterfaceMetric:                      0"

No address is exposed.

You might even make the command line
    cmd /c ipconfig | find "IP" & pause
which would display just the IP address(es).

Someone in the lab like some download, maybe from sysinternals, that would
paint a bunch of useful stuff as background wallpaper, but it was static.
If you didn't run it after a change, the display would be misleading.

Some wireless config tools have a systray icon that exposes the IP address
if you hover the cursor over the icon.

grep?  awk?  That doesn't sound like standard Windows to me.
