Hello! So I am fairly new to networking in general and when I looked in my IP config I noticed that there was no "Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection" even shown. Although I can connect to WiFi through a USB, I wasn't available to find my local IP address. So I was wondering if it was possible to get some help on this. Thank you!!!

When I type ipconfig;

Well you have a few interesting points there. You have to VMWare based adapters, those are the 192.168. The very last one is a WiFi adapter that shows the 10.0.0.2 IP.

However those are all Local IP addresses to whatever devices they are and are typically provided by your router/DHCP server. Then there is your Public IP which is the IP provided by your ISP.

Thank you . . . but when I look in my device list on the at&t ip, I can't seem to find my personal computer or at least a correlating IP to my computer and that list.
