   Oh? That's been the IP address on the firewall/router for many years.

   Huh! I didn't know windows knew ping.

   Nope. 'Destination host unreachable.' Don't suppose there's an equivalent
to resolv.conf is there?

   Start -> Control Panel -> Network & Internet -> Network & Sharing Center
-> Local Network Connection 2. This opens a window with general information
and the top line for ipv4 connectivity shows 'No network access.'

   Clicking the 'Details' buttons opens a network connectivity details box
that displays the IP address for ipv4.
