in win xp type in the run copmmand "ipconfig"
for win 9X I think the command is "winipcnfg" but I am not sure
 another way, with win xp is to go to the network connections control panel and couble click the connection to your network and then click the support tab, you IP will be listed right there. This should work whether it be wireless or ethernet .

well, if you want to find the real IP address (as on the Internet) go to www.whatismyip.com, that reports it in a nice & easy to use format.

Well, this does NOT work in a LAN.  ;)

Ok, here we go.

Win95/98/ME: go to start. go to Run. Type in winipcfg (press enter or click OK)
Check the ip adress of the card you'r using. It should be one like 192.168.0.1, 10.0.0.2 or like this.

Win NT/2000/XP: go to start. go to Run. Type in command (press enter or click OK)
Now in the box that appears type in ipconfig
et voila there's your current ip :)

Whoops, sorry, I read the first post and he said he had a cable connection and the IP changed frequently, then he said he wanted to find the IP of another computer on the same wireless LAN.

I can see why the cable co. would dynamically allocate IPs and why they would change, but why would the LAN IPs change frequently?

So if he wants to find out what IP the cable co is currently giving him, www.whatismyip.com or something like that is what he wants.

If he wants to find out what IP he currently has on the LAN, ipconfig will work.

Perhaps he wants to know the IP of one of the computers on the LAN from *another* computer on the LAN, in which case he's probably better off assigning names to the things.

This isn't strictly true.
The correct command to open a command prompt in 2k/xp is 'cmd', not 'command'.
Just thought i'd point it out :-)
