- Go to the Start menu, go to Run, and type “CMD” in the dialog box (without the quotes.
- Now you should see a dark (DOS) window
Without the quotes, type “IPCONFIG” and press ENTER.
- Now you should see some network information, along with the IP ADDRESS of your computer listed.
- If more information is needed, other than the IP address, type the following from the same DOS box described in step two: IPCONFIG /ALL
This will provide you with more network information on your computer.
- There are also websites available that can provide your computer IP, such as http://www.whatismyip.com.
- If you have a router/network set up, please note that the initial steps above will only show you the network’s IP from the router. For example, if you have a Linksys router installed, and perform the IPCONFIG command, it will show you something like “192.168.1.x” as opposed to your computer’s local/root address. For this reason, following STEP 5 above may be useful.
