    I found mine in my router in IP settings.
    My router stores all IPs and gives them (sometimes names)
    Other than that I dont know - unless there is a homebrew which does it?

    I'll check my router settings.

    EDIT: Nope, i can't find it anywhere

    EDIT #2: I could go to one of those "What is my IP?" websites on my Wii's browser would that work?

    Log in to your wireless access point / wireless router.

    Look for DHCP table, or something like htat. Shows all IPs connected to it.

    No.

    The router will have a list of addresses to use for the DNS service. This will usually be of the form 192.168.x.x. Have a look for connected wireless clients.

    The Wii address will be part of the 192.168.x.x sub-range and will be different to what you would see on an internet site as that would just show what IP your router is using.

    What IP is your computer using?

    I think you mean DHCP.
    I've seen 10.0.x.x in some places.

    Yep - should have written DHCP.

    I've also seen the 10.0.x.x range - but not as much these days.

    Angry IP Scanner.

    Then you search from like 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.255.255

    Trust me, it will find it eventually, else you check your routers DHCP table.
