    Windows XP can’t detect ipconfig as either internal or external command

    As I was not able to connect my PC running on Windows XP to modem, I have entered ipconfig command into the command prompt to check the connection. But, my PC does not recognize that command or consider it as even operable program or batch file. How to resolve this?

    Navigate through the desktop and right click on ‘My Computer’ icon. Choose ‘Properties’ from the menu appears on the screen. Press the ‘Advanced’ tab afterwards and click the ‘Environment Variables’ button. By the time you can view ‘System Variables’ box, move towards ‘PATH’ and highlight it. After that, press the ‘Edit’ button visible on the screen. Then, type the path, C:\WINDOWS\system32; into the variable value box. Click on ‘OK’ button thrice and enter the ipconfig command again.
