If you are having trouble connecting to your local network or the Internet, use the Windows command  ipconfig  to check the details.  Even if your network is working fine, it’s an interesting place to visit. 

See my previous post on command prompts  to use the  ipconfig  command.  You can find your network name / DNS, your IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.  You can find even more interesting details by typing  ipconfig /all

Remember to type exit  <Enter> to close the command prompt window.
