Every computing device that’s on internet has two IP addresses i.e. Public IP address and Private IP address. Public IP is one through which the computing device can be accessed over internet. Public IP addresses are always routed on internet. Private IP, on the contrary, isn’t routed on internet and isn’t used for accessing internet rather for local network only.
Public IP Address
Open your web browser and type “What is my public IP” in Google search bar.
We will click the very first result on Google i.e. whatismyip.com
On the homepage, in the heading you can read your Public IP address.
Private IP Address
Click Start Menu and type “cmd” in the search bar and click on Command Prompt.
Type ipconfig and hit enter key.
In the results, you can see Private IP addresses for all connected interfaces and in my case, I’m interested in the Private IP address for the Wireless Adopter since it’s the one directly connected to the internet.
