A Computer which is not connect to any network devices doesn't have any IP address.IP is a network layer protocol which is needed for communication between two devices.You can obtain IP address automatically through DHCP Server ( like you obtained when you connect to internet or in most of the Corporate Network ) but still you can assigned IP address manually as Most of the Server have a static address.
But if you need to have a network connection without physically connecting to any networking devices then there is a way.
Goto control panel-----> add or remove hardware ------> add new hardware devices------> network adapters--------> microsoft---------> microsoft loopback adapter--------> click next --------> then finish.
In this virtual adapter you can assigned anything like
IP Address : 192.168.1.10
Subnet : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS : 22.214.171.124
Secondary DNS 126.96.36.199
