Default How can I find my IP address

Hi

I have been using my SGS at home without no problems connecting to my ADSL wireless router. Now when I try to connect, its says its trying to obtain IP address. At work I have no problem, same router, same supplier (Telefonica, Spain) but at home no luck. Please can someone tell me best way to sort this problem.
Thanks

please don't use WEP encryption .. WEP can be cracked in less than 5 minutes
to find your external IP [the one provided by your ISP] use the site given before
if you wanna find your internal IP [the one provided by the router] menu->settings->wireless and networks->wifi settings -> click on the network [must be already connected]

I had this problem with some routers too .. wouldn't connect
here are some ideas that may work

1- go into your router settings and change the wireless channel [am using channel 11]
2- while in wifi settings, menu -> advanced and set a static ip for your phone

if you dunno what to put then here's what to do
assuming you have a laptop with a wireless connection, connect to that network from the laptop and check network details
your ip should be something like 192.168.1.3, for your phone .. put the same thing but change the last number
i.e. 192.168.1.5
gateway should be same as your computer

the 2nd option will be kinda annoying as that you'd have to disable the static ip for other places and enable it when you are at home

When I had the same problem simply turning off the router for a couple of minutes then booting it back up solved it for me.
