How to determine what your computers IP address is


How to determine what your computers local IP address is

Applies to Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7

1. Click Start - Run

2. Next enter "CMD" and click OK

3. Next at the command prompt type "ipconfig" and press enter

At this point all your active connections will list on the screen. Note you may need to scroll back up the window to get to the connection info you need. Also keep in mine if you are connected to your wired or wireless connection because both might have an IP address assigned but you can only be actively connected to one at a time not both.

4. Look under the Local Area Connection if connected to your network via a wired connection or Wireless Network Connection if connecting via a wreless connection.

Once under the right connection you will want to look for the line that shows "IP Address" this will have what the computers current IP Address is. Note if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 it will be listed as "IPv4 Address". Also while you are here take note to what the "Default Gateway" is because if you are trying to network computers together you want to make sure they are connecting to the right network.

Here is an example of what IPCONFIG looks like on a computer running Windows 7

Can't ping Default Gateway (XP) From Windows 7


Make sure you are receiving a proper IP address from the DHCP server....If you run a cmd prompt (windows icon, type cmd and hit eneter, then ipconfig) you should see a 192.168.0.x address. If not, go to the control panel, network connections, manage network connections, and be sure that TCP/IP (V4) is set as auto-configure....


If you are sharing the connection through an XP computer, you will need to run the Internet and connection sharing Wizard on the XP computer, and transfger the settings on a disk to the Windows 7 PC. A simpler solution (assuming you are on a cable/dsl connection would to be to go to your local big box store and buy an Internet/Firewall router. It would also increase your security.

I am running Windows 7 (the new vista) so I hope I can help. Go to the "Start" button and select "Control Panel". Click on "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing Center". You shouls see something like: Computer =====Network ====== Internet. If there is an "X" on one of the connections, that may help you decide which option further down to try. You can keep me posted if this helps to this point.

How to share internet connection on Windows Vista OS. I want to share internet connection between two Laptops using Windows Vista Operating system and the other using Windows XP. The Host computer is...


All right let's call your Vista computer A and your Xp computer B. First you have to bring the two computers into LAN. If you already did this, please skip the next eight steps.

Step 1: In Vista, before doing this you should enable Sharing and Discovery. You can do that by going to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, enable Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if you want to. (See picture below)

Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown under Control Panel -> Network Connections.

Step 3: Right click that local area connection and click properties.

Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘Use the following IP’ and give an IP address (For example, IP address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0)

Step 6: Don’t give any other information, Click Ok and close everything.

Step 7: In computer B, which is the XP, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer ‘A’. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer ‘A’ will assign an IP address dynamically. If it’s not working make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’.

Step 8: Test the connection by pinging. (You can do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 or whichever is Compter ‘A’s IP in the comand prompt)

NOW your computers are connected. Now to share the internet:

Right click LAN card which is connected to Internet under Control Panel -> Network Connections and click ‘Sharing’ tab and enable both the options to share Internet. (Note: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties)

Click Ok and close. This option is given by the Windows OS known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

Now you can use Internet from both Computer A and Computer B from a single connection.

So this is the setup you need on the Host computer as you requested, if you turn out to need help witht he XP one too, let me know:)
