How to find your IP address

When we browse on the internet, websites collect data from us. These basically include our external IP address, internet service provider (ISP), web browser used, remote port used, referring url and location, among others. If you would like to know your own IP address before they do, or just for curiousity's sake, here's how.

Method No. 1

Go to the following websites, or simply click any:
checkip.dyndns.org
whatismyipaddress.com
ipchicken.com
mywanip.com

In case you know more websites for IP checking, please let us know and kept updated.

Method No. 2

Install Robin Keir's IP2 software.

IP2
"IP2 is a small program that you can use to determine your IP addresses - both WAN and LAN. What this means is that along with showing you the traditional IP address that your computer is using in its local environment (e.g. a LAN) it will also show you what your IP address is from the perspective of an "outsider" on the Internet. This is in contrast to the many tools and utilities available on the Internet that simply return the LAN address, which is useless if somebody on the Internet needs to connect to your computer."

Pretty simple isn't it? Now you have known another basic knowledge surrounding your computing life.
