ipconfig & missing IP address

How to fix a missing IP address from ipconfig

If you're not seeing an IP address assigned after running ipconfig, make sure that:

  • You have set up automatic IP assigning instead of the manual assignment
  • If you're using wired LAN connection, the physical connections between routers, switches and computers are working properly.

You can try to run the ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew commands:

  1. Open Command Prompt.

    ipconfig open command prompt app

  2. Run ipconfig /release. This will release any currently assigned IPs to your adapter.

    ipconfig release command results

  3. Run ipconfig /renew command to ask the DHCP server to assign IP to your adapter.

    ipconfig renew command results

  4. Look for the IPv4 Addressrow to determine if an IP address has been assigned.
