How do I find out the gateway IP address of a WiFi network I am connected to on my computer, through the WiFi connection only. I do not have access to the WiFi router directly to or the admin page

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

    Perhaps we can help. Please provide all necessary info about the WiFi network, and all related technical info about your phone's networking capabilities.

    It would also be far better to place all of that info into a separate question since it's completely unrelated to this thread.

    Since this is a 7 year old question, most people reading it will be searching for answers rather than trying to supply an answer. And since your comments have nothing to do with this thread, it's extremely unlikely that anyone reading this thread will have useful knowledge for you.

    So, again...

    Please provide all necessary info about the WiFi network, and all related technical info about your phone's networking capabilities. (Without knowing network specs, we have little chance of knowing how it actually works.)

    It would also be far better to place all of that info into a separate question since it's completely unrelated to this thread.

    Better yet, ask your college's tech support. They should be made aware of problems if the network is provided for students..

    In general, an open network (assuming wifi) there is a number where you send a sms, and they provide a password to join the network.

    You'll have to ask the college tech support. We have no idea what networking setup they have (unless you provide the specs to us), so we can't give an answer.

    And this thread isn't the place for such an answer anyway. This thread is about a different subject.

    So open your own, new question, and include the necessary specs there.

    @Shantell, first check your Wi-Fi plan/tariff through your vendor. Next check the area where you tried to connect the wifi. Also check configuration or password that you supplied correctly.

    If your phone cannot connect to the inter net, go into the settings and make sure you have the method you want to connect with enabled. Either Wi-Fi or mobile data must be on. Make sure you have the correct password for connecting to the Wi-Fi signal. You may need to change the Wi-Fi connection is using a public hotspot. If you still have issues connecting, come back with more details.

    It is necessary to set the Access Point, if an internet connection makes through a mobile phone. By default it sets automatically, but sometimes manual intervention may be required.
