wifi is disconnected, so the result says “media disconnected”

ipconfig will display all ip addresses of the LANs, Virtual box, interfaces etc connected.

C:\Users\myUser>ipconfig/all

To display only ip address details from the result, then

 IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :192.160.10.32

This above command will only display the result containing the word “Address”
