    How to display wifi IP address

    Subject should be pretty self explanatory. How do I display the IP address that I get when I'm on a WIFI network?

    Also, is there an app that would allow me to ping other IP addresses without having root access? I've looked/searched, but can't find the answers to these two.

    Do you mean your internal IP or the external IP of the wi-fi network?
    for external, when connected to wi-fi on the G1, visit http://whatismyip.com

    for internal, and for your other question, I'm not sure...

    No, specifically what IP address gets assigned to the phone itself, not the IP that the Internet sees.

    But thanks.

    I figured it might be under the "about this phone" like the MAC address, IMEI, etc.... I thought I also might find it under the "advanced" section of the wifi settings, but apparently that's only for configuring a static IP.

    How to display wifi IP address

    Just found how to get your internal IP:
    Settings >> Wireless Controls >> Wi-Fi Settings

    At the bottom under "Wi-Fi networks"
    tap the connection you are connected to

    It brings up a window with info like:
    Signal Strength
    IP Address

    Yep, worked like a charm. Thanks

    Hmm, I wish it showed the default gateway too.

    I see that OscanO will do tcp port scans, but it would be nice if it would just do a ping.

    How to display wifi IP address

    In addition, to get it from an application, you can use the following piece of code:

    public String getLocalIpAddress() {
    try {
    for (Enumeration en = NetworkInterface.getNetworkInterfaces(); en.hasMoreElements() {
    NetworkInterface intf = en.nextElement();
    for (Enumeration enumIpAddr = intf.getInetAddresses(); enumIpAddr.hasMoreElements() {
    InetAddress inetAddress = enumIpAddr.nextElement();
    if (!inetAddress.isLoopbackAddress()) {
    return inetAddress.getHostAddress().toString();
    } catch (SocketException ex) {
    Log.e(LOG_TAG, ex.toString());
    return null;

    How to display wifi IP address

    There's an app available called Network Info II that provides internal, external ip, MAC, SSID, Gateway, DNS Servers, etc and a bunch of other information.

    The other network app I use is Network Mapper that will scan the network you are connected too.

    I've found both useful resolving friends' network issues.
