Default Which IP address is right?

Ok,

I'm not really a newbie but I have just started getting involved with ip address and network configuration because I am going to start a job this summer at a small networking firm. I was wondering, how do I find out my ip address that I can access across the world wide web. I am going to setup a remote desktop connection on my desktop and I want to access it from my office computer. How do I find out the right ip address to connect to?

p.s. the router info is: linksys befw1154

To find your ip just got to. Run then type CMD then once the black box comes up type ipconfig it will give your ip. Unless your under a firewall it will just give you your lan ip. if u are just go to what is my ip . com

Unhappy re: ip

Trust me, I know ipconfig. My only problem is that I am behind a router. I have two computers and both computers have the same IP. How do I access my main desktop, not my roommate's desktop? I can't disable the router though because it does provide a level of protection.

Use port forwarding on your roughter. Find a port that your room mate does not use and use that one when you connect to your computer.

port forwarding is the way to go. Port 3389 is typical for Remote Desktop Connection
