Sure, you can perform the same troubleshooting tasks from the Windows GUI. But why dig through multiple menus, when you can type a few characters into a command prompt? So, I've put together this short quiz to test your knowledge of the Windows ipconfig command. I'm using Windows 7 as the basis for this quiz.Note: Unfortunately, our poll tool, which I use to create each pop quiz, doesn't let me indicate a correct answer after each question.

I encourage everyone to answer all the questions before looking at the second page or using your favorite search engine to find the answers.
