BlackBerry Tour: How to find your IP address

Like most devices that connect to a network or to the Internet, your BlackBerry Tour has its own IP address. If you need to find your IP address (or if you're just curious) follow the steps below. (The process may vary for other BlackBerry models, but it should be similar.)

A. From the main screen, press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots) to go to your Home folder.

B. Find the Options folder (with the wrench icon) and select it.

C. In the list of options, scroll down to Mobile Network and click the trackball.

D. Press the BlackBerry button.

E. Click on Tools on the menu.

F. Click on Ping.

When the Ping test utility opens, you'll see your IP address displayed at the top of the screen, labeled "Device IP." You don't have to use the Ping utility; you can click the back arrow to exit out after noting your IP address.

Alternatively, you can run the Diagnostics Test, which will also display your IP address. To run the Diagnostics Test, follow the steps above, but after step D, substitute the following procedure:

E. Select Diagnostics Test from the menu.

F. Press the BlackBerry button.

G. Select Run.

The Diagnostics Test can take a few minutes to complete, and it will display various settings for your BlackBerry, including the IP address (Device IP). The report generated by the Diagnostics Test will be saved so you can view it later for reference or use it to compare current settings.

just downloaded an app to my nokia lumia 920 (JMPS mPrint) to use it they are asking for my IP address what is it and where will I find it please

An Internet Protocol Address is the "address" your device uses when it connects to a network that identifies it when communicating with other devices. If you need your internal IP (the IP used for your local network) you can usually find it in the network settings of your device. If you need your external (internet) IP address you can find it by typing "whats my IP" into google

how to configure router & switch

You shouldn't have to configure anything except the PC's should have IP and gateway set to auto.

Here is how it works:

A router connects two separate networks and manage the traffic between them.

In most home network applications the router connects your local group of computers and devices known as the LAN with the Internet, commonly called the WAN or Wide Area Network.

The router usually assigns unique Local IP addresses to all of the devices connected to it via a service known as DHCP. The addresses assigned by your router are private addresses http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_net... and are not routable across the Internet.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is an auto configuration protocol used on IP networks. Computers that are connected to IP networks must be configured before they can communicate with other computers on the network. DHCP allows a computer to be configured automatically, eliminating the need for intervention by a network administrator. It also provides a central database for keeping track of computers that have been connected to the network. This prevents two computers from accidentally being configured with the same IP address. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_Hos...

Your cable or DSL modem will get a Public WAN IP address from your ISP's DHCP service. These public IP addresses are leased in blocks by your ISP and are Internet routeble. The modem is connected to the WAN port on your router. The router will manage the traffic between the devices on the LAN and the Internet.

If your 5 port switch is connected to one of the router's LAN ports and router's DHCP is on then it will configure the clients attached to It automatically.
