How can I find out what my IP address is?
The cable modem works with a DHCP server. It assigns you a dynamic IP address that changes periodically.
You can use specialized software available on the Internet to find out your IP address at any given moment.
On some computers, the steps below will also help you find out your IP address:
- Start menu.
- Enter ‘IPCONFIG’ then click ‘OK’.
- Select your network card.
- Verify your IP address.
Alternately you can visit a site like http://www.whatismyip.com/ to see what IP the internet sees you holding because if you’ve got a home network such as a wireless network IPCONFIG may only show your private home IP address.
