I am trying to use ipconfig, but everytime I enter the command in the windows command prompt, I get the crash dialog saying, "The IP configuration utility has stopped working", with the reason saying "APPCRASH". Is there anyway I can remedy this issue without a reimage of the OS?
For some reason whenever I try to run ipconfig, once i hit enter, the window pops up for like a milisecond and then goes away. Never had this happen and can't find anything about it on the net. There's no error message or anything like everyone else who's had a problem with it,
Any thoughts ?
edit - even tried the full command, c:\Windows\System32\ipconfig.exe, still same problem.
I don't know if this has anything to do with the Windows 8.1 operating system, but I cannot pingback or log on to my router (gateway). Also the gateway address info won't show up with ipconfig command. I've changed multiples routers and won't work anyway.
On a Windows 2000 PC, I did a "ipconfig /release" to disconnect it from the network. After about 6 hours, I checked it again and it was still disconnected. But then about 17 hours after that, I checked it again and it had renewed the IP address and was back on the network.
My Internet is behaving very strangely the last few days, DNS resolution is very slow, PING domain can take a minute, PING IP address and NSLookup is instant. DNS servers are correct as other PCs on the same network didn't have the same problem.
After upgrading to Windows 8.1 Pro from 8.1 and joining to domain, the laptop in questions would only connect to the wirless network that the Domain and DNS Server were on. The DNS of the Windows machine was manually pointed to the DNS Server.
After discovering the laptop had this issue I tried adding a secondary manual DNS pointing to Google DNS (22.214.171.124) with no luck.
