When you ask: What is my IP?

I’m star­ting a small series of posts that cover the most asked ques­tions on Google. Most of these ques­tions won’t be ans­we­red here, because as this first ques­tion may show, I don’t have the ans­wer for you. Howe­ver, I might, for fun, give an ans­wer if I per­so­nal­ly know it. It’s most­ly to have fun with why people ask so many questions.

An IP address is pure­ly a unique address on a given com­pu­ter net­work. Much like your phone num­ber is on a tele­phone net­work, your num­ber must be unique so that your device can be contac­ted without risk of confu­sion. Your IP address may be that of your net­work map­ping on your local net­work, your wire­less map­ping for example. It will often be some­thing like 192.168.2.101. Unique on your local net­work, your rou­ter, which would be at address 192.168.2.1, uses it to route infor­ma­tion bet­ween your com­pu­ter and it in order to, in most cases, relay it on the Inter­net. Your rou­ter has a sepa­rate IP address on the Inter­net, as the Inter­net is a net­work in its own right. This would be what is often cal­led your “public” IP address. It is cer­tain­ly this address that is being sought by this question.

Why this address and why ask Google? Well, Google has deve­lo­ped a fea­ture that returns this address without you having to go into your router’s confi­gu­ra­tion inter­face. So the first ques­tion is sim­ply more proof of our pen­chant for effi­cien­cy. What? You’re either consistent or you’re not! And why do we want to know this address? Sim­ply to give it to be able to be contac­ted, no dif­ferent than fin­ding your phone num­ber and giving it to someone else!
