Chapter 27. Troubleshooting Your Network > Checking Network Configuration

Checking Network Configuration

If hardware isn't at fault, you may have a fundamental network configuration problem. Often the Event Log or Device Manager gives these problems away, but if they don't, you can use another batch of tools to check the computer's network configuration.

ipconfig

If your computer can't communicate with other computers on your LAN, after you check the Event Log and Device Manager, you can use the ipconfig command-line utility to see whether your computer has a valid IP address. Check others on the LAN, too, to ensure that they do as well.
