- Looking at the label stuck on the router - on most routers, on the bottom or on the back, a label is stuck on which the "coordinates" necessary to access the relative control panel and, consequently, also the IP address are shown.
- Consult the user manual - if you have the user manual of your router (it is usually included in the sales package or it can be downloaded in digital format from the manufacturer's website), you should be able to trace its IP address also through the latter, by consulting the section on the indications for accessing the appliance management panel.

And if you are interested in understanding how to find the TIM router IP address, how to find the Fastweb router IP address, how to find the Vodafone Station router IP address and how to find the Infostrada router IP address, I suggest you read my specific guides for the devices provided by telephone operators and that I have just linked to you: you can consult them to receive detailed information on how to connect to the relevant management panel and, therefore, also to find the IP address of the devices in question.
The same goes if you want to understand how to find TP-Link router IP address and how to find D-Link router IP address, as well as that of Netgear branded devices. Even then, you can read my tutorials on how to access related management panels.

You can easily find out what is the public IP address that has been assigned to your router and, therefore, to your user (since, according to what has been stated above, the data coincide) using an online service, such as What Is My IP Address, which shows the data in question immediately, after opening the relevant web page.
