To do this first open your “command line promote” (in Windows 7 you can open a command line by going to start button and write “cmd” and in XP or earlier go to start button and click run and write “cmd”). After the command line promote window come type “ipconfig” and press enter.

Now you will see information about your IP configuration. So you will find your subnet mask at the below it is something like code for example there may be 255.255.240.0 or something like that. It is not case sensitive so you can also type “IPCONFIG”. Remember to give it without “”.

Thank you.

Hi Donal,

You can see your subnet mask on your computer by using the following simple process:

  • On your computer, click on the network icon that should be in the task bar.
  • Click on open network and sharing center.
  • In the message box that opens, click on change adapter settings.
  • When the next box opens, locate from the networks given which one you will like to see the subnet mask.
  • Right click on it, and then click on status.
  • A message box will open next, on it click on details, and there you can view the subnet mask on your network

I have given this procedure assuming that you are using windows 7.

Hope this helps.

First of all you need to know what operating system you are using so that we would know how we can check your subnet mask.

IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWS:

To know what your Operating System (if you are using Windows) is, you can right click on MY COMPUTER on your desktop. The desktop is the first screen that you see when your computer turns on and where your icons can be seen. My Computer is usually situated on the upper left portion of your desktop. After right clicking, it will show a drop down menu, please click on PROPERTIES. Then it will open a new small window. By default, it will be on the general tab and that's where you could actually see the version of the operating system that you are using. You will either see, Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 which is under system. Once you know your operating system already, close the open window by hitting on the red x on the upper right portion and we can now go ahead and check your subnet mask.

HOW TO CHECK SUBNET MASK:

  • For Windows XP computers:

First please click on Windows icon, that's on the lower left portion of your computer screen. Then you click on RUN. It will open you a small window. Please type "cmd" without the "" then hit on ok. After that it will open another window, a black screen which is now the command prompt. Just type "ipconfig" without the"" then hit on enter. It will show you now a list of items. Look for the connection that you are using then under it you will see the subnet mask.

  • For Windows Vista or Windows 7 computers:

First please click on Windows icon, that's on the lower left portion of your computer screen. Then you click on ALL PROGRAMS. After that, look for ACCESSORIES, then right click on command prompt and make sure to click on Run As Administrator. After that it will open a window, a black screen which is the command prompt. Just type "ipconfig" without the"" then hit on enter. It will show you now a list of items. Look for the connection that you are using then under it you will see the subnet mask.

Hope this helps you! 🙂
