Did you try this?

awk -F\. '{print $1 "\n" $2 "\n" $3 "\n" $4}

echo QUAD | awk -F\. ' (NF == 4  { print $1"\n"$2"\n"$3"\n"$4"\n" } '

NF is the equal to the number of elements. If there are not the four octets, there will be no output.

. ' " , etc. have to be escaped (\) when those are the delimeter.

Do you have to use awk?

If not, easier to do

echo 10.20.30.40|tr '.' '\n'
