Useful RUN commands please?
« on: November 25, 2006, 11:54:35 PM »
Can somebody tell me some basic useful RUN cammands like  cmd-msconfig....?
And how to reset wifi   IP address and network address from the run command.?
Everyday I use free WIFI  from the company but time to time some pc are connection cut out
and required network address again and again while Some are in good connection the whole day.
I try with ipconfig /all but typing changes is not allowed.
Thanks to you all.

For getting a new WiFi connection, you could try at the command prompt ipconfig/release ( to release the lease to the WiFi adapter and access point or bridge), then enter ipconfig/renew ( grab a new lease from a different DHCP connection with a gateway or same lease as the prior DHCP connection.)

Sometimes I also have to flush my DNS by using ipconfig/flushdns

All commands can be seen at ipconfig/? command

ALSO... If you disable and reenable your WiFi adapter via the switch on your laptop, usually a slide switch if it has one, you can also force a connection release and renew....

You can also go into the wireless preferences configuration and specific connection priorities, if you want one connecton to connect first over another of available...

Hope this helps .... Dave ;)

Yes I did as you told me before and just now again , but still cannot.

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

and I got this message.

No operation can be performed on Wireless Network connection while its media is disconnected.

What to do next please?

While others of our sale pc are working fine. But three of those are disconnected again and again.

Thanks for your reply in waiting.

ah yes, you can only run those commands if you have a lease and want to drop the connection and reconnect to another... There is no way to control the wireless from command prompt that I know of when the connection is disabled...


The slide switch for the wireless is set to ON right?? And not disabled in Windows networking?? :-?

Or do you have a PCMCIA WiFi Adapter???

Odd how you have same computers in same location as this one and this is the odd ball in the same wireless environment, a detail I didnt pick up on before... ;D

    Odd indeed! Sounds like he is intruding on someone elses network and got kicked.

    Unless there's a particular need, I wouldn't attempt to make such changes through the command prompt.  Is there a reason why you want to do it this way?
