How to find the IP address of computers and devices on your network using your router

I had thought the Default Gateway is the Modem's address but now I am thinking the Default gateway's address is the router's ip address? If this is correct then does this mean the modem will have an ip address of it's own? I am betting it is on a different ip, that ip is passed to the router and the router is likely handling DHCP handing out ip's to your computers and devices.

  3. What is my modems IP??

The easiest way to find the modems ip address would be to connect a computer to the modem using the same line the router is currently plugged into and then opening a command prompt and typing ipconfig, there you would look for the "default gateway". You can do the same command while connected to the router to see the default gateway. After finding that number out, you can login to the router by opening a web browser and typing that ip in the url bar where you would type a web address such as www.

Thanks for the explanation so other than bypassing the router and hard wiring a pc directly to that modem no other way to get it's address? It depends on the setup You might be able to put DHCP on the modem depending on what it is and use the router as an access point, then you could access both through the router.

Do modems have different ip addresses than routers? - Networking

If you log into the router, sometimes it will show the internet gateway there which likely would be your modems ip. Oh one more thing, you should be able to ping the modem when connected to the router, but you will need to know the ip of the modem to ping it. For example, my router is doing dhcp with an address range of Oh, one more issue please if you will?

If a router is not receiving internet signal from the modem, will the pc's connected to the router still be able to communicate with each other or would the the router absolutely need internet service for the pc's to see each other? If the internet goes down due to a internet service provider issue storm knocks out a hub, hardware failure etc , your local network would still work and the comptuters can still communicate with each other.

So if one pc on the network does not work, one would need to troubleshoot that pc by going to that pc and checking to see if it has an ip address? If it doesn't then you can assign an ip address manually and that would take care of it? It depends on what is not working, if the computer is connecting to the router and the internet but not sharing files, you would need to change settings in windows.

Welcome to BleepingComputer , a free community where people like yourself come together to discuss and learn how to use their computers. IP addresses are typically in the same format as a bit number, shown as four decimal numbers each with a range of 0 to , separated by dots—each set of three numbers is called an octet. This format is used by IP version 4 or IPv4. With it, you could—in theory—have 0. So now, there's IPv6, which is bit, and went from four to 16 octets. That's a lot more than 4 billion—it's a 34 with 37 zeros after it or 2 to the th power.

How to Find Your IP Address

Technically, ,,,,,,,,,,,, That's a lot of IP addresses. This can be particularly handy for things like VoIP calls or remote control software. What you'll also find is that there's lots of information about you attached to that IP address, specifically your ISP's name and your general location called a GeoIP. Figuring out your provider and general location based on IP address is as simple as consulting a public list.

The simplest way to check your router's public IP address is to search "what is my IP? With Google, that's all you see. There are plenty of sites out there that will show you the exact same thing.

They see it simply because by visiting the site, your router has made a request, and thus revealed the IP address. The GeoIP info is far from foolproof. Generally, you're going to get an approximation of location—where the provider is, not the actual computer. Be sure to log out of your VPN service , too. Every device that connects to your internal network, be it at home or the office, has an IP address your PC, your smartphone, your smart TV, your network printer, etc.

It doesn't matter if it's using Wi-Fi or Ethernet. They've all got an IP address if they're talking to the internet, or each other, through your router. In the most basic network, your router is going to have an IP address like That typically means your router will use DHCP to assign addresses to devices, where only the last octet changes.

So It depends on the range defined by your router. This is pretty much the same on all internal networks, because they're hidden behind the router, which routes all that communication in and out to the proper places. If you have a big internal network, another number called a subnet will help divide your network into groups. The subnet mask used by most home networks is So how do you find it?
