How to find your Router's IP address

The easiest way to know your Routers Internal IP address is by using a little command line tool called ipconfig. This command line is built in with Windows Operating System and is being used for various networking solutions. To use this, you need to click Start and find the run command. Click the Run command and you should see a little run dialog box after.




In the run dialog box, type in cmd and either press ENTER or click the Ok button. You should see a black window with white text and this is referred to as the command prompt.




At the command prompt type in ipconfig and press enter. That should display three major information. The IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway. The IP address in line with Default Gateway is your router's Internal IP address.

Each Router has Internal and External IP address. The internal IP address is what you use to talk to your router. Use this IP address to login to your router setup page and configure it for things like port forwarding. External IP address is what the rest of the world uses to find you on the Internet.

Hope this helps.

Try to acquire an address from the router by performing a ipconfig /release command, then ipconfig /renew at the command line. If that doesn't work then you may have to manually enter IP address and DNS address and Default Gateway address in the IP Properties page of your adapter. Could be your present address is using APIPA or Windoze Automatic Private IP Address of 169.254.x.x
