Hello Barry,

I think you will always have an IP, on the internet they are called
public IP's and on a home or internal they are called private IP's.  When the are private they
and be fixed or assigned by a DHCP server.  All this assumes that we
are talking about TCP/IP, netbuie and IPX do other things I know
little about.

from the DOS prompt type "ipconfig" and it will give you details of
your machine.

there is also windows command that will give you the same info but I
forget what it is.

I should add that you should never try to makeup public IP's it's a
sure route to trouble!! :)
