Setting up an IP address using the ipconfig command is a simple process that can be performed from any computer with an internet connection. This article aims to provide a step-by-step guide on setting up an IP address using the default gateway and the DNS server. This can be useful if you cannot access the internet or need to change your IP address. It is also useful if you are unsure of what your current IP address is.

Steps to Configure IP address in devices using ipconfig command in Cisco packet tracer:

Step 1: Open the Cisco packet tracer desktop and create a network topology peer-to-peer connection between two PCs as shown below:

S.NO Device IPv4 address Subnet Mask Default Gateway
1. PC0 192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1
2. PC1 192.168.0.3 255.255.255.0  192.168.0.1

 

Step 2: Configure PC0 and PC1 using the ipconfig command:

command : ipconfig <ip address> <subnet mask> <default gateway>
  • First, click on PC0 and go to the command prompt terminal.
  • Then, type the ipconfig command and configure the PC0 as shown below the image.
  • and verify the IP address by again typing only ipconfig in the terminal.
Command: ipconfig 192.168.0.2 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1

 

Similarly with PC1:

  • First, click on PC1 and go to the command prompt terminal.
  • Then, type the ipconfig command and configure the PC0 as shown below the image.
  • and verify the IP address by again typing only ipconfig in the terminal.
Command: ipconfig 192.168.0.3 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1

 

Step 3: Verifying connection by pinging the IP address of PC1 in the PC0 terminal:

command : ping 192.168.0.3
