Here’s a quick tip for those of you looking to find your LOCAL (as in within your network) IP address. In Windows, you would simply issue the following command from the command prompt (Start > Run > “cmd”)
Which would yield something similar to the following results.
U:\>ipconfig Windows IP Configuration Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection: Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : mshome.net IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 220.127.116.11 Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 18.104.22.168
From a Linux shell, you would issue the following:
Which would yield something similar to the following results
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0F:EA:91:04:07 inet addr:192.168.1.2 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::20f:eaff:fe91:407/64 Scope: UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:31167 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:26404 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:38338591 (36.5 MiB) TX bytes:3538152 (3.3 MiB) Interrupt:18 Base address:0xc000

Hey! Excellent site!

Matt – I’m not sure exactly what you are looking for. Please post with some clarification so I might be able to help you.
I have a black box attached to my PC via LAN. I don’t know it’s address how can I see it’s IP address?
Excellent, Matt. For Vista users click Start, enter “cmd” click on cmd.exe then enter ipconfig.

I have an encoder attached to my laptop vis ethernet. How can I find the IP address of that device? There is supposed to be a default IP address from the manufacturer, but I am not able to ping it. Any ideas?

how do you find you local ip address ??
Your “Black box” it’s a router. His IP adress it’s called “Gateway” and his default Gateway is 192.168.1.1 😉
i have been pleased after reading this blog the knowledge which has been provided via this blog is simply tremendous.
i really appreciate the blogger for doing this work.
I had another method in mind along with using IP checking tools like IP Elk but this clearly is a new and improved idea for me. Will definitely take a deeper look at this so Bookmarked for now.
Thanks and Regards,
my cmd prompt doesnt show the default gateway..what should i do
Is it the same as IPv4 address?
Default gateway =/= IP
