I Have Windows Xp. I have Bell South DSL, which i guess my computer masks the Ip address. I need to know how to get my real IP address so that i can play direct connection multiplayer games.

So i would really appreciate it if someone could help me.

First, welcome to Geeks-To-Go :)

You can find your external IP in several ways, but the easiest would be to use a website like www.ipchicken.com

Also, on a similar note, if you're wanting to play direct connect games, you may need to open ports on your router if you have one.

Hope that helps.
