    Default How do I find

    How do I find out what my computer IP address is, so that I can allow my computer access to the internet on my router? Also I have another router being used as a remote extender, will it have an IP address too?

    I am use to windows using IPconfig, but that will not work in OpenSuse. I haven't done much of this kind of stuff on the Linux, which is the only thing I use at home.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Well I ran this on a bash konsole, it came back with nothing.

    cherock@linux-Tumbleweed:~> /sbin/ifconfig -a
    bash: /sbin/ifconfig: No such file or directory
    cherock@linux-Tumbleweed:~>


    Do I need to run in the root directory? /root

    Sauerland, I appreciate this information, that was exactly what I needed to discover the IP address on my computer, It also led me to discover my remote router address and TV was also on this IP address as well, which was why my service for both of the TV and router would not work. I had inadvertently blocked those two devices on my main router setup. Thank You.
