I have a HP Pavilion computer running Windows 8.1, and the other day it stopped connecting to the internet, although it would still list WiFi routers. I tried three sources, and none worked, although it would say it connected. I ran the troubleshooting wizard, I restarted the WiFi hardware, and I checked the command prompt "ipconfig" with /release and /renew, but nothing worked.
Im needing to find my ipv4 address to make a server because my old one was on windows 7 then i upgraded to windows 8, which i now regret because i cant find my computers ipv4 address when i type ipconfig in my elevated (Run as administrator) command prompt.
