Get your IP number from the terminal
Authored by: paulrob on Jan 18, '06 12:35:56PM

Assuming that appropriate security can be applied, the best webpage to 'skim' would be the status page (assuming there is one) on your router. I've yet to see a router that is configurable via webpage that did not also display the info somewhere. It is unlikely to be reformated.

Many routers can also be contacted via SNMP or TELNET (the latter certainly being insecure)

Also if the router has a firewall, whose logs are being forwarded to your computer, you maybe able to retrieve the IP number from the logs.
