Internet FAQs

How do I check to see what my IP address is?


Our Internet uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to assign IP addresses dynamically. This means that you will not always have the same IP address. If you are speaking to a Customer Service Representative, you may be asked to provide your IP address to aide in troubleshooting your connection.

To find your IP address if you are connected directly to your modem via an Ethernet cable:

Windows:

  1. From the Start menu, type cmd in the search field and enter.
  2. At the command prompt, type ipconfig /all and enter.
  3. Your networking information, including your current IP address, is displayed.
  4. To exit the command prompt window type exit and enter.

Macintosh:

  1. Select Network from System Preferences.
  2. Select the TCP/IP tab. Your IP address can be located within the IP Address field.

Using Google:

  1. Type IP address in the Google search bar and enter.
  2. Your IP address is displayed.

whatsmyipaddress.org, and other websites like it, can also assist you in finding your IP address.

Note: If you are connected to the Internet through a router the IP address you find may be one issued by the router and not the IP address that is assigned by the DHCP server.
