This tutorial will show you how to find the private and public IPv4 and IPv6 address of your Windows 11 PC.

An IP address (Internet Protocol address) is a unique address that identifies a device on the internet or a local network.

Your computer will have IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

Your computer will have public (external) and private (internal/local) IP addresses.
  • A public IP address is a unique address provided by your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to identify your local network on the Internet. If your computer is connected directly to the Internet without a router sitting in-between, your computer’s IP address is a public IP address.
  • A private IP address is assigned by your router to a PC or device on your local area network (LAN). When a computer is assigned a private IP address, the other devices on the local network sees this computer via its private IP address. A private IP address can not be directly reached from the internet.
