How to Find the IP Address of Your Computer in Windows


information   Information
An IP address identifies a computer that is connected to the Internet or a network by a unique number. Currently this will usually be a Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) number that consists of four groups of numbers separated by periods, for example 192.200.44.69 (not a real one).

This tutorial will show you how to find out what the IP address (Internet Protocol address) is for your computer in XP, Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.





OPTION ONE
To Find IP Address in Network Connections Details
1. Open the Control Panel (icons view), and click on the Network and Sharing Center icon.

2. In the left pane, click on the Change adapter settings link. (see screenshot below)

6. When done, click on Close (steps 4 and 5) twice and close the Network Connections window (step 3).

1. Open a command prompt.

2. In the command prompt, type ipconfig /all and press enter. (see screenshot below step 3)

Just a heads up, the 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4)' link in the information header seems to take me to the SF homepage. Possible broken link?
