Command Prompt

By ZokuBatsu ·
I was troubleshooting my connection because it doesn't work, when the Windows Help center told me to
"Open run
Type cmd
Type ipconfig /release
press ENTER"

And I did. And it said that
"'ipconfig is not recognized as an internal or external command, opperable program or batch file"

What am I doing wrong?

That's right

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to Command Prompt

ipconfig.exe should be in the windows/system32 directory.
If it's there try ipconfig.exe / release, if not go back to the network setup wizard in control panel

What am I doing wrong? Absolutely Nothing at all

Provided that you wanted to clear your IP Addresses which is exactly what you did when you entered ipconfig /release.

If you want to make the Ethernet work again you can enter the Command Line Prompt and type in ipconfig /renew which may work or you can run the Network Setup Wizard again to set an IP Address to that NIC.

No, see, no matter what I type in in the stupid prompt, I get that error.

I reinstalled windows since I posted that. /roll
