  • One can also do this from the command prompt. In Windows XP, click on the following menu-sequence:
    Start->Run->[type "cmd"]
    A dark screen will appear with the command prompt that will look like this:
    C:Usersvenkatesh>
    Type the following command there:
    C:Usersvenkatesh>ipconfig /all
    Information regarding network settings for _all_ network interfaces will appear. One can also see the IP address, subnet mask, and for each interface, the MAC address.
    To exit the dark screen, type "exit" and press ENTER:
    C:Usersvenkatesh>exit
    One now returns to the main window.
