There are different ways in Windows to quickly retrieve your IP address. I’ve provided two methods below.


  1. Select Start | Run
  2. Type cmd in the Run dialogue box, and press Enter
  3. Type ipconfig /all at the command prompt

This will open a command window with your IP address information. One advantage is that you can send the information to a text file by typing ipconfig /all> c:\ip.txt

View status

  1. Select Start | Control Panel
  2. Open Network Connections, and double-click the icon for your network (If the network appears in the system tray, you can just double-click that icon)
  3. Click the Support tab
  4. Select the Details button

This will open a Network Connection Details window with your IP address information.
