Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

WINS Servers I"m setting up my new XP computer and it's asking me for my IP address etc. I've done the C:>ipconfig /all | more and gotten everything but the address for the WINS servers. Where do I get that info? Thanks.


Answers :

Are you sure that you need WINS? WINS is typically only used on a corporate network and is not used very often anymore. Whether you are using static IP's or dynamic (DHCP) you can still manually add the WINS server IP address in the TCP/IP settings of the adapter in question. If you're using DHCP, are other systems on the network getting WINS? Perhaps ths DHCP server is not set up (or not capable) to pass out the WINS server address.
