Internal/external IP
I'm sure this is a simple question but I don't know how to tell what my internal IP number is and what my external IP number is.
Are they both in IPconfig? I have two computers connected to a router and the router connected to the internet.

Your internal IP address is probably in the 192.x.x.x range, and is the IP number on your local LAN. Your external IP address is accessable by viewing the router's status page. If you're done the IPCONFIG command and gotten the gateway address, try typing that address into IE's address line and you should be able to access the router's setup pages.

As JohnWill said you can go to the Routers config page or you can just go to:

http://www.whatismyip.com

That will give you your external Internet IP address.

I tried http://www.whatismyip.com, and sure enough, it gives you the external IP address. Since there were no links on the page, I was especially amused by the following content, one has to wonder how you access it!

WhatIsMyIP.com is the easiest way
to determine your IP address.

It is also a great source for
information about the internet and
for tutorials on networking and computers.

There used to be alot sites that did this but a few of them no longer do it. IpMonster used to do it right on there website but now they have a utility you can download to put on your desktop.

There is also

http://www.ipchicken.com

Those are the three that I know of.

Actually, my favorite site for web troubleshooting is Network Tools, they have all the common tools. In addition, I can do things like ping or tracert to a site from a totally different location to see if my local ISP has routing issues. I've twice had to point out that I couldn't access a site from my location, but I could from another location. That can only really be a routing issue with the ISP.
