Command Prompt does not display LAN settings

For a college assignment I have to go to the command prompt and type in 'ipconfig/all'.  from there I should be able to see the Host Name, MAC address, Default Gateway, Subnet mask, etc, however...this information does not show.  Its either all zeros (in the case of the address)  or its just not there at all.  I can go into the Network Connections and view these details there...but they will not show in the command prompt. I spent 40 minutes on the phone with Geeksquad just for the guy to tell me "I dont know what to tell you".  Does anyone have any ideas??  This is rather troublesome considering a lot of my work has to consist of accurate screen shots of the Command Prompt.  Thanks in advance!!

Just to make sure use an Admin Command Prompt.

Then type   ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt

This should catch the output to a text file name ipconfig.txt and store it at the same folder that the Command was issued at.
