WAN IP Address

10 posts in this topic

GWDoes anyone know a method to pull a WAN IP address from say a LinkSys router without having to go to a website or pull up the routers web interface? I'm in need of a method to find the external IP address, not the internal of the home network. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I haven't played with the command yet but I believe that you would get the IP assigned to the PC by the router, not the router's IP.

I'm not sure how Autoit could pull the public IP of the router but I know you can go to whatismyip.com to get the IP assigned by your ISP. Perhaps you can get a script to read that site?

#include <Inet.au3>
$PublicIP = _GetIP()
MsgBox(0, "IP Address", "Your IP Address is: " & $PublicIP)

Dude! I love you! Well, not really but a great "THANK YOU". I've got to learn more about the Inet.au3 library.

Thanks again,

GW

He said he wanted to get the IP address without going to a website. The internal workings (as the last time I saw them) of that function are to check an external website.

Exactly, and the routine did pull the IP of the router assigned by Verizon, which is exactly what I'm needing. The simple routine posted works like a champ!

Glad it worked for ya. I don't have access to the helpfile as I'm working atm. I'm glad that there is that functionality now in Autoit. Will be useful in the future.

uh? Interesting. I never have gone thru all the custom scripts so I'm in the dark about them. I'll have to look it up and see how it works then.

Thanks for the info.
