Galaxynet :: Your IP Address
What is this?
This is the IP address of the machine that requested this web page.
Typically this is the IP address of your computer. If you use a
router or proxy server, you will get the IP address of that router or
proxy and not the IP address of your computer.
Finding your IP address if you use a router or proxy
If you use a DSL/Cable router, or some kind of proxy server to connect to
the Internet, this web page will not show you the IP address of your
computer. This page only shows you the IP address of your router or proxy.
To find the IP address of your computer, use one of the following steps:
Windows 95/98: Click your "Start" menu, then select "Run..." Type
in the command "winipcfg" and press Enter. This will open a dialog box that
will show network information about your network adapters. Select which
adapter you're using to connect to see your IP address and gateway.
Windows 2000/XP: Click your "Start" menu, then select "Run..."
Type "cmd" and press Enter to get a command line. On the command line,
type "ipconfig" to see your IP address, subnet mask, and your default
Mac OS X: Open your System Preferences. Under Internet and
Network, click "Network." This will show you your IP address and other
A little bit about your IP (Internet Protocol) address
When you connect to the Internet, either via Galaxynet, some other
Internet service provider (such as AOL, MSN, Earthlink, etc.), or
your office LAN connection, your computer is assigned an IP address. This
address identifies your computer from the other computers on the
internet. Your IP address can be either static, meaning it never
changes, or dynamic, meaning each time you dial-in or login you
are assigned a new address for that session.
