Script to run ipconfig commands

I wondering if anyone can give me the syntax for writing a batch file or simple executable to run:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

I tried creating a batch file containing exactly that, and what happens is the cmd windows show on the desktop and it seems to be in a loop in the release. It looks like it just keeps trying to run release over and over and the only way to stop it is to close the cms window. Not to mention IP is never released.

Please advise.

Hi smoore6857,

I'm just guessing you named the script "ipconfig.bat"
Just change the name.

Greetings,

LucF

if you were to type in the command one at a time atthe dos prompt  does it still seem to be in a loop?

check your network connection to make sure that you are using DHCP

Wouldn't think .bat would have anything to do with it.
If you're script is called IPRefresh.cmd or .bat - this should work.

Why don't you try redirecting the output?
ipconfig /release >> c:\results.txt

Let it run for a bit and then post results.txt
