Instead of using the command line to display /configure your ip with ipconfig, you can download wntipcfg from microsoft which will give you the same GUI to display / configure your ip as winipcfg.
here's the link: Click Here
once you download it and install it (the default is c:\program files\resource kit\ ) copy wntipcfg.exe to c:\windows and rename it to winipcfg.exe Now you can just click on run, then you type in "winipcfg" just like the good old days =)
