    As can all users of Windows since Windows 95 on the “Support” tab. Too bad it doesn’t yet use UPnP to list the real external IP if you have a gateway/router.

    You could just go into a command prompt and type in “ipconfig”.

    It should tell you exactly what it does here, just does it much faster…

  3. In case if you want to see complete IP address details(includes, DNS, WINS etc), then use “ipconfig /all”

    @shinigamibob : you are right it will be easy for you to use cmd to know the ip and it will be easy for the expert user too , but for the ordinary user he will need to use a GUI , cmd will confuse him .
