equiv of ipconfig /all?

In the Linux world, what is the equiv of ipconfig/all (from Windows)? I know "ifconfig" but it doesnt show me the DNS servers, etc.

nslookup should show the first DNS server your box finds when looking for google.

Also, dns servers are usually stored in /etc/resolv.conf.

If your linux box is behind a router, such as can be purchased anywhere, then resolv.conf will probably have the address of the router as the dns address.
