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 gateway.

    Mac OS X: Open your System Preferences. Under Internet and Network, click "Network." This will show you your IP address and other network information.

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.
