I've tried running "ipconfig /all" from the "run" command in Windoze, but it flashes the results so quickly then disappears that I don't have a chance to read the results! How do I get this information? Is there a Web site that can read my config? Or, what's a good guess at the defaults that would work for my satellite interface (which would be better, in case my data isn't static)? Also, where do I go in FBSD to edit the config so I can access the net?

You could try opening a command prompt (cmd/command in run) and running 
it, that way it won't close after it exits.
