In this article, I will explain how to know the local IP that your computer has and the default gateway of your network (Default Gateway). In many cases, this information is important to know when we need to manually configure the IP address and gateway on our computers. Having this manual configuration avoids various problems of network conflicts and also avoid dropping connections.

This information can be verified on a PC or from a mobile device. Here we explain how to check it on PC and Android specifically.
