What's my IP?

This article will explain to you how to find what IP address has been assigned to you by your Internet service provider or the address that you use on your LAN.

Windows 9x

For Windows 9x go to Start ->Run.  In the 'Open' box type "winipcfg" and click OK.  This is a program that will give you information about the network adapters you currently have in your system.  You should see a box appear that looks like this:

winipcfg

If you are connected to your ISP by a modem, make sure the drop down box is on PPP Adapter like above.  In the 'IP Address' box where it reads 0.0.0.0 is your IP address that your Internet Service Provider has assigned to you.  In the 'Adapter' drop down box you can change the adapter and if will give you its' respective information.

Windows NT

For Windows NT go to Start ->Run.  In the 'Open' box type 'command' and click OK.  This will give you a command prompt window.  At the prompt type "ipconfig/all" and press enter.

This will list information about all of the network adapters currently in attached to your system.  If you are looking for the IP address that your Internet Service Provider has assigned you through your dial up modem account, look for a heading that reads "PPP Adapter".  In the list under that heading there will be a IP Address, and that is the IP address that has been assigned to you.
