  1. i am trying to figure out me ip and dns server. i go to cmd prompt via 'Start-Run-CMD' and when in CMD i type in ipconfig /all, and also just ipconfig and it comes up with this message.

    'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program batch file.

    Any suggestions as to what i can do to fix this or find out my information elso where?

    i missed the second part, ipconfig doesn't do it either?
    I cant remember, but you may have to be under admin to use cmd

    You are probably having a pathing issue. Try changing directory to your %WINDOWS%\System32 directory then typing ipconfig

    You are showing the space but are you actually leaving it:

    type ipconfigspace/all
