I’ve been trying to find out my default gateway address and I read that usually it’s something like 192.168.1.1, but when I try and find out mine (cmd>ipconfig /all is this right?) what I see is just a really weird address with multiple colons and letters like
Why is this so?
Oh okay! That was pretty silly lol. So my default gateway is my IPv4 address?
That’s no weird address… that’s an IPv6 IP address. Better get used to it, because you’re going to see a lot more of it in the coming years.
I suspect that your screen is scrolling off and you are missing the IPv4 address.
Try: ipconfig /all | more
to page the screen…
are you sure that is it, because you get more then just the default gateway with ipconfig command and i recognize that from out put of that command but its not the default gateway
are you sure your not looking at the link local IPv6 address?
