    Step1: Go to the start menu and select Run.... Then type cmd in the box and click OK.

    Step2: At the C:\> prompt type ipconfig . Then press Enter. Your IP address, subnet mask and default gateway will be returned to you. If your IP address is 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, or 172.16.x.x, then you are receiving an internal IP address from a router or other device. The IP address that the world sees is that of the router. If you are receiving a 169.254.x.x address, this is a Windows address that generally means your network connection is not working properly. On ResNet, the only valid IP addresses will begin with 152.7.

    If you want more detailed information about your network connection, type ipconfig /all at the prompt. Here you can get the same information as ipconfig with the addition of your MAC (hardware) address, DNS and DHCP server addresses, IP lease information, etc.

    Get a No Cost Background Check Scan at

    Its a sensible way to start. The site allows you to do a no cost scan simply to find out if any sort of data is in existence. A smaller analysis is done without cost. To get a detailed report its a modest payment.

    You may not realize how many good reasons there are to try and find out more about the people around you. After all, whether you're talking about new friends, employees, doctors, caretakers for elderly family members, or even significant others, you, as a citizen, have a right to know whether the people you surround yourself with are who they say they are. This goes double in any situation that involves your children, which not only includes teachers and babysitters, but also scout masters, little league coaches and others. Bottom line, if you want to find out more about someone, you should perform a background check.

    When you type ipconfig you won't see "LAN IP Address", you'll see a line with "IP Address:". That's the IP address for this computer, which is the address you want to forward the port to (assuming you do it on the computer you want to forward the port to). "Gateway Address" is the IP address of the router, the address you connect your browser to, to forward the port.

    Depending on the router, you may have to set a static address if you're forwarding a port. (Turning your computers on in a different order will give them different IP addresses otherwise, so some routers won't forward a port to a computer set to get its address from the router. Go to the forum at if you need more help.

    What Is My Network Ip

  • 1 decade ago

    no your local ip provider has nothing to do with your LAN IP address (LAN=local area network)

    Simply if you have windows xp, click on start/run and type cmd

    than simply type ipconfig

    and check whats your IP!

    (the one like should be the router yours should be 192.168.1.X, X being your number from 1 to 255, obviously here not one as its the router).

    The absolutely free reverse phone lookup sites generally provide the most basic of information such as name and it works only for landlines. To get further information, money will have to be paid. The free searches do not provide much more than what can be found through the phone book or personal knowledge and they only want your email to send spam.

    Stay away from shady reverse phone lookup sites, most likely you won't get any information after you make the payment. Not to mention you won't get a report and you won't get an answer if you try to call for a refund. Stick with a reputable reverse phone lookup site like that has been around since 1999.

    If I recall correctly they have two options:

    1. Get only one report.

    2. Get unlimited reports. I went with this option because I wanted to verify more numbers. This is how I caught my girlfriend cheating, I got the name, other phone number, address history, relatives, and criminal-court records.
