    Start--->Control Panel--->Network Connections---> Local Area Connection---> Support tab brings up a simular screen for me. If you want a little more info just hit the "details" button.

    i know about ipconfig, but was hoping for a nice interface.
    BTW ipconfig /renew wont show you the details. it will get a new IP from your DHCP host. ipconfing /all will show the info.

    try copying the winipcfg.exe file from your win9x box into a your \windows\system32\ directory [XP] or \winnt\system32\ [2K]. and type

    winipcfg via start run.. it should work..

    What information do you really need. If it is anything besides the 3 you listed above, CLI is the fastest, easiest option. No pretty GUI, but XP figures you won't need that anyone, as you really don't, nothing really changes except the DHCP server IP. Which should change on its own around every six hours for most IP's.

    Some (which I have Tech'ed for) are pieces of **** that make you sign in with a user name and logon then will bump you off if there is inactivity.

    I've done it on a win2K box but not XP you need tocopy the winipcfg.exe file and a few DLLs from the win9x box to get it to work.

    or you can also download the windows resource kit utility wntipcfg: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000...wntipcfg-o.asp

    Well, after getting that link of yours, i entered in a search for 'ipconfig xp' and it gave me this page...

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/e...l/cerelli1.asp

    And it just says that you can use the solution in your link. It also gives you the link to it. Excellent tool, IMO, command line is nice, but it is better IMO to be able to see the results of what is going as they are updated. It is too bad that MS didn't include it with every copy of XP. Anyone have any logic to why they didn't??
