I am sure this is a quick fix I just don't know what fixes it.
When I used to do an ipconfig in a dos windows I would only see the connections that were connected (ie my LAN Connection). Now I see everything like Tunnel adapter, Bluetooth etc. (around 10 different things). I assume there is a dos command that will take this back to the way it was but I am not sure what it is. All of them just say Media disconnected, but I still do not need to see them all.

You might be entering ipconfig /all so seeing lot details.

Do only ipconfig, it will show minimal details.

Yes you need to do ipconfig /all to show everything even if its not connected.

I don't see why you want to filter it out but here is how to do it:

ipconfig | findstr [0-9].\.

Ipconfig will always show all adapters installed in the system, on Windows. you can renew or release specific adapters, but the information dump always shows everything.

IPConfig by default shown all adaptors, if you want more details use the /all keyword. If you want to filter the output, use as Zindel1 suggests.

that's by design.............ipconfig will show all the adapters....

you will need to use netsh to see specified info
example:
netsh interface ip show addresses name="Local Area Connection"

Open in new window



or Powershell
Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapterconfiguration | ? {$_.IPen
abled -eq $true}

Open in new window
