How to find your local IP address on Windows

It’s simple to find your local IP address (the one on your local network, usually assigned by your router). It usually takes just a few clicks, but those clicks are different depending on which version of Windows you’re using.

Windows 10

Here’s how to find your local IP address in Windows 10:

  1. Right-click on the Windows logo in the lower-left corner of your screen and select “Settings.”

    To see your local IP address in Windows 10, start by right-clicking the Window icon and picking “Settings.”

  2. Click “Network & Internet.”

    In the Windows 10 Setting screen, click on the Network & Internet icon to see your local IP address.

  3. Select “Wi-Fi” or “Ethernet” in the left-hand menu, depending on whether you’re connected wirelessly or via an ethernet cable.

    In the left column, pick the kind of network you have, in order to see your local IP address.

  4. Click “Network” in the center column. Your IP address will appear in the next window, in the entry “IPv4 address.”

    Your local IP address is shown, along with several other network parameters.

Windows 8/8.1

Here’s how to check your local IP address in Windows 8 or Windows 8.1:

  1. Click the Network Connection icon and select “Open Network and Sharing System.”

  2. Double-click “Wireless Network Connection.” Or, if you’re using a wired connection, double-click “Local Area Connection.”

  3. Click ”Details” and your IP address will appear.

Windows 7

Here’s how to find your computer’s local IP address in Windows 7:

  1. Click the Network Connection icon and select “Open Network and Sharing Center.”

    To see your local IP address in Windows 7, start by clicking the Network Connection icon on your Desktop.

  2. Double-click “Wireless Network Connection” or “Local Area Connection” for wired connections.

  3. Click “Details” and your IP address will appear.

    Windows 7 first shows you the speed and quality of your internet connection. There’s one more step before seeing your private IP address.

    Clicking “Details” shows this screen, which includes several network parameters, including your local IP address.

Windows Vista

Here’s how to find your computer’s local IP address in Windows Vista:

  1. Open the Windows Start menu and right-click “Network.”

  2. Click “Properties.”

  3. Click “View Status” to the right of “Wireless Network Connection,” or ”Local Area Connection” for wired connections.

  4. Click “Details” and look for the IP address in the new window.

Windows XP

Here’s how to find your computer’s local IP address in Windows XP:

  1. Open the Windows Start menu and right-click ”My Network Places.”

    In Windows XP, you can see our local IP address by first opening the Start menu and right-clicking on “My Network Places.

  2. Click “Properties” and you’ll see a Network Connections screen.

    The Network Connections screen is the next step to seeing your local IP address in Windows XP.

  3. Double-click “Wireless Network Connection,” or “Local Area Connection” for wired connections.

    Double-clicking “Wireless Network Connection” in Windows XP shows you the status of your connection, but not your local IP address.

  4. Open the Support tab and click “Details.” Your IP address will appear.

    Clicking the “Details” tab in the Windows XP’s Wireless Connection Details screen shows a number of network parameters, including your local IP address.

Find your local IP address using the command prompt (CMD)

If you’re handy with a keyboard or don’t like tapping through a multi-step process, you can use the Windows command prompt to find your local IP address. Here’s how to find your IP address using CMD:

  1. Get to the command prompt by opening the Start (Windows) menu and typing cmd in the search bar. If you don’t have a search bar, open the Start menu and click on “Run.”

  2. At the command prompt or in the Run box, enter ipconfig. A window will open with several pieces of network arcana — the IP address is one of them.

    Entering “ipconfig” in a Windows Command Prompt screen displays several network parameters, including your local IP address.

How to find your local IP address on a Mac

Finding your local IP address on a Mac is straightforward:

  1. Pull down the Apple menu and select “System Preferences…”

  2. Pull down the View menu and select “Network.” (Or you can double-click on the Network icon in the System Preferences window.)

    There are several ways to see your local IP address on a Mac. Start by opening the Network System Preferences pane, either with the View menu or by double-clicking the Network. icon.

  3. In the left column, click on the network connection, generally either Ethernet or Wi-Fi, depending on whether you have a wired or wireless connection.

  4. For an Ethernet connection, your local IP address will be shown.

    If you have a hardwired connection, the Network preference pane shows you your local IP address when you click on the Ethernet menu choice.

  5. For a Wi-Fi connection, click the “Advanced…” button in the lower-right corner, and then the “TCP/IP” button along the top of the window. Your IP address will be shown.

    To see your local IP address for a wireless connection, click the Wi-Fi menu item and click the “Advanced…” button in the lower right corner.

    To see your local IP address for a Wi-Fi connection, click the “TCP/IP”button in the top menu. Click “Cancel” to get back to your normal work.
