First how do i find out what mine is??

Secondly, do IP Addresses change everytime you connect to the internet?? i connect to the internet through a router on a DSL connection.

*First how do i find out what mine is??*

IF XP, go, to start, run, type:

cmd /k ipconfig

Click ok. IP address will be shown.

*Secondly, do IP Addresses change everytime you connect to the internet?? i connect to the internet through a router on a DSL connection*

Depends on your ISP.

Fixed IP - IP address will be the same.

Dynamic IP - It will change.

The link by Vog is wrong as that will give the IP address of the router and not the computers IP address.

IPCONFIG gives me the same IP address as my McAfee Firewall. Are you saying they are both wrong? What router?

Phil said that he connects through a router as I do, I clicked on the link you posted earlier and it gave me the IP address of my router.

ipconfig /all gives me my real IP address plus that of my router.

Ah! OK.

with most routers you can set a staic IP on your PC and use that, as long as you set the gateway IP address to the routers IP ( seems a common number) then your laughing... ...

i have one IP address from my computer to the router and one from the router to the internet?? is this correct??

thanks for the help, i was having trouble, it worked fine last night and then trying to connect today it said it couldn't detect proxy settings and the internet would not load yet all the correct lights were on on the front of the router!

You have an IP address from your ISP which routes you to the internet through your routers IP address which acts as a proxy, log onto your router and find out the IP address and then check that the default gateway IP matches up.
