Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You wont find the address to the network gateway, but you can find the router IP address.

In a command prompt window, type: IPCONFIG
The gateway address is the router address.

Also type: ARP -a
This will tell you the other devices that your machine has contacted.

    if i get the default gateway how do i use that to know the other user’s ip address   You don't. The gateway address has no relationship to another user's address. Knowing a gateway address doesn't help at all.   You seem to be asking specific technical questions, but they don't seem to have any relationship to a problem that you are trying to solve. Tell us what the business problem is. Then we might be able to tell you which technical elements are relevant.   Tom
