    Hi,

    I am using XP Pro. Where do I find the IP address on my computer? I looked in the Control Panel > Network Connections, but found nothing.

    Thank you.

    Do you mean your external IP address (as seen by your ISP) or your internal/LAN IP address?

    For the former try whatismyip.com, for the latter, open a Command Prompt window and type IPCONFIG , and press Enter.

    Start, Run, cmd. At the cmd prompt window type Ipconfig /all (the space before the / is needed)

    I don't recall specifically for XP but there may also be a shortcut to the command prompt at Start, Programs, Accessories

    A most efficient path to the local I.P. Address is to run with the Show notification of connection in tray, located in properties for any adapter. Then its a simple matter of right clicking on the notification icon at any time choose Status and click on Support tab; both local and gateway address are indicated.

    If you don't run with connection status in the tray one can get there almost as quickly by right clicking on Network Places--Properties and then right click on the active network connection and choose Status again.

    W7 and 8 have the additional step of going through the Network and Sharing center first but are otherwise the same.
