Computer IP address recovery:
For an easier visual reference, you can use Windows 7 IP Or Windows XP IP
Router IP address recovery:
If your router was supplied by your ISP or you brought it at a computer and electronics store, you should be able to figure out the IP address by:
1. Follow the instructions above to obtain your computers IP address.
2. Replace the last set of numbers with a 1.
Example - The steps above return 192.168.1.37, Replace the .37 with a 1. You should have 192.168.1.1. Thats likely your routers IP address.

IP Address : the ip address of the computer
Default gateway :the Ip Address
Start Windows Vista and log on to your account. If you are the sole user of the computer then your computer will automatically load to your account, and you will have administrator privileges in order to check or change an IP address.
Check to make sure that you have an active connection to the Internet. You cannot check an IP address using Windows Vista without having access to the Internet.
Head to the whatismyip.com website to determine your current IP address (see Resources below). Once the web page loads, you will automatically see a display of your current IP address.
Alter your IP address manually by using the Windows Vista Network and Sharing Center. Click "Start" then "Control Panel" and double-click on the "Manage network connections" link.
Click the "Network" tab. You will see that Windows Vista is set to "Automatically assign an IP address."
Click the "Use the following IP settings." This will allow you to change the settings to your own specific needs.
Enter all of the required IP information, including the IP address, Subnet mask and Default gateway. The system administrator and/or the network administrator will have this information.
Click "OK" once you have finished.
Navigate to and click on your "start" button. Scroll up the options to "Run" and right click on it. A new window will open and in the white bar you should type "CMD".
Click "OK" and the window will disappear, and a new one will open. At the top this window will say: "C:/Windows/System32/cmd.exe" if you have done this correctly. Navigate into the black window under the directory that is shown last. For example: C:\Documents and Settings\Owner/.
Type in "IPConfig" after the last forward slash in this line and press enter. This will generate a list of information for you to look at.
Look under the heading "Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection" for the IP Address listed. For example, an IP address should have 4 sets of numbers like 193.267.1.102. The number on this line is the only number associated with your specific IP address
There are several different ways to access your IP address. One is through the Windows Command Prompt interface. To access this interface click "Start" > "All Programs" > "Accessories" > "Command Prompt."
Or, you can click "Start" > and then type CMD into the Search box and hit "Enter."
A black windows with a prompt will appear. It will look something like: C:\Users\username>. At the prompt, type "ipconfig" without the quotes, and hit "Enter."
The window will display a long list of information. Look for IP4 Address. You will see a numerical representation that looks something like this: 192.168.1.100. This is your internal IP address that is used to communicate with your local network.
If you don't want to use the command line interface, you can also find your IP address by going to Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center, and clicking on "Change adapter settings" at the top left.
Double-click on your "Wireless Network Connection" or "Local Area Connection," depending on which you are using.
On the Connection window that pops up, click on the "Details" button.
Look for the IPv4 Address. -- Computer
Look for the IPv4 Default Gateway -- Router
