Once connected to Wi-Fi, your phone gets two IP addresses, an internal one and an external one. Any device connected the same Wi-Fi network has its own IP address in the local network. All your devices share the same public IP address assigned by your ISP. To troubleshoot local network issues, you may need to find out your devices’ IP address. Both router and local IP address can be found right inside the phone settings. For public IP address, simply use some third-party online IP address lookup services. We will use a LG phone in the demo to show you how do view your IP. Finding out your IP address on other Android mobile phone involves the same or similar procedure.
