I'm trying to set up a static IP address for Win XP and each guide tells to go to start/ run/ type cmd or command and then enter Ipconfig and enter and a page will open up.



Well, I do all that but when I hit enter, it says: 'ipconfig is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file'



***? What do I do? I'm doing everything right.



Could it be because a partial command line is already open? It says: C:\Documents and Settings\ Jerry> If so, how do I retract that? Or is that not even the problem?

In the Command Prompt, Make sure you are typing just ipconfig and hit the Enter Key on the keyboard, no quotation marks or other characters.
However, to set a static IP address for XP go to Start/Control Panel/Network Connections Right click your Local Area Connection/Properties and scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) highlight it and choose Properties. Put a check box in Use the Following IP Address. Be prepared to type the Static IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway,
