How to find the IP address for your Chromebook

For users who are to new to Chromebooks and the Chrome OS, finding your IP address when you need it can be a little tricky, but it's not hard to do.   When you are connected to a network, follow these steps to view your Chromebooks' IP address:

- Click on the status bar in the lower right corner (the area with the time, sound icon, battery icon, and wireless connectivity icon).
- You will see "Connected to" followed by the network you're on; click on that line.
- A list of available Wi-Fi networks will be shown, with the current connected network at the top, in bold.  Click on the network you are connected to.
- In the network connection window, click on the Network tab.

Your Chromebook's IP address, along with the subnet mask and gateway, will be displayed.  Note that if you are on a private network (such as a home or business network) this IP address is not the same as an Internet-facing IP address or public IP address.
