    I have 3 computers hooked up to a linksys wireless network. I just went to start, run, then typed in ipconfig/all and all I get is a quick flash of the blackened rectangle all the information should be in. This is happening to both computers downstairs. I've had no problem for weeks, now this.

    The command prompt window is just closing by itself when it's finished. Open a command prompt first and then try it.

    Thank guys!
    Jeez this is a great place. I just forgot the "cmd", and here thought I was in some bad trouble. I wrote it down this time.

    If all you need is the MAC, 'getmac' is muchtidier. Of course, if you have multiple NICs, there's not much way to tell one MAC from the other.
