Finding Your Public IP Address

The easiest way to find your public IP address is by asking a website, since that website sees your public IP address and can tell it to you Ė for example, you can search for what is my ip or what is my ip address on Google. Google will display your public IP address.


You can also access your routerís administration page to find this information. This page displays your public IP address and other information about your Internet connection. Different routers have different administration page layouts and different default local IP addresses Ė consult your routerís manual if you need more information.


Unlike street addresses, IP addresses arenít necessarily fixed. Your Internet service provider may regularly assign you a new IP address, just as your router may occasionally assign your devices new IP addresses.
