Your ip on internet can be given by :

Your ip on your private network (if you use router/firewall) can be given by using the ipconfig command with a dos window. It will be your router who will have your internet ip.
http://www.nsquery.org/ipconfig.htm

To use ipconfig from within Windows:
- Select the Start button on the Task Bar.
- Select Run.
- Type cmd.exe.
- When the DOS command prompt window opens,Type ipconfig.
This will display basic IP configuration information. For more options, type ipconfig /?.

But be carefull, internet ip is not egal at your private network ip if you use a router (wirless or not).
You will have it on direct access only.
