What is my IP address?

Your IP address is assigned at the time you connect to our modem, but is subject to
change. If you are using a router, the IP address will be assigned to it instead of your
computer. The easiest way to find the IP address assigned by Mediacom is to go to
http://www.whatismyip.com. To find the IP address assigned to your computer, steps are
determined based on your operating system. See below.
