Which IP?

Your router is likely to have two different IPs. One internal and one external.

The internal one will probably be either, or The external IP can be found by going to a website like There's also a Mozilla Firefox extension that will get your IP address.

you can go to the RUN line, type in WINIPCFG and hit enter. A small box will appear. If you are connected to the Internet via a dial-up connection, then
select PPP-Adapter. Your IP address should now show up.

That program doesn't exist in NT4 or Windows2000 either. It only exists in Win9x/Me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
