    Hi Experts:

    I have a Laptop machine (XP with SP2), when I did a "ipconfig /all", the
    output shows only the section "Windows IP Configuration". Usually there
    should be one more section "Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection" where IP
    address, netmask etc are shown. Why am I missing this section? Any hit is

    Thanks in Advance!

  2. This is probably because your network adapter is disabled
    or not functioning.

  3. That should be seen if you do "route print" ( no routes for your adapter
    have to be showen )

  4. Most probably you had other adapters active at some point (PC Card or
    USB-based network cards?). Also please note that an adapter could be more
    than just a physical device: a vpn connection, a dial-up connection to the
    Internet, etc..
