How do I find my IP address?

Checking your IP Address in Windows is easy and pretty much the same process for every version. The easiest way to get your IP address is from a command prompt. To get to a command prompt simply click on Start and then Run and type in cmd and press Enter. If you don’t have a Run option then you can type it in the search box like you see in Vista and Windows 7. Once you get the command prompt window open simply type in ipconfig and press Enter.

If you have more than one network adapter such as a wireless adapter then you will have more than one entry. Look for the entry that goes with the connection you are using. If you plug in using an Ethernet cable then look for Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection. Then look for the line that says IP address. For newer versions of windows that support IP 4 and 6 it may list both. You want the line for IPv4. In the example the IP address is 192.168.1.2.

If you need more information such as DNS or DHCP information the type ipconfig /all to get a more detailed display.

This can be helpful in troubleshooting other network connectivity problems as well.
