Network Information Center is a free program for Microsoft Windows devices that displays the computer's internal and external IP address, default gateway, and physical address (Mac address).

How Do I Find My IP Address was a guide that we published on Ghacks a few days ago. It described how a Windows user could display the internal and external IP address on the computer without resorting to external tools or applications.

We have received quite a few emails by users who told us that they would prefer a software solution.

Network Information Center

Network Information Center is such a software. The tool displays various network related information in its interface on startup.

The computer network information tool lists the external and internal IP address, default gateway and physical address on start. It needs to connect to the Internet to look up the external IP address though.

All information can be copied to the clipboard individually.

A refresh button is available to update the network information. The program displays the name of the network interface card and lists an option to ping an IP address or website.

It lacks more advanced networking tools like tracert, but it was probably never the intention of the developer to create a full blown networking software.

Network Information Center is a handy software that displays relevant information about the primary network card. The program runs fine on 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Microsoft Windows operating system. It might need the Microsoft .net Framework to run. The download of the 210 Kilobyte tool is provided on the website.

Update: Network Information Center's website is no longer available. The program as a consequence is no longer maintained nor available for download.

We have uploaded the latest release version of Network Information Center to our own server. This was purely done for archiving purposes. We don't support the program in any way.

To download the program, click on the following link: (Download Removed)

    This app requires .Net Framework, doesn’t state which version, I have all included latest 4.0, still run shows a “Container” error, though delivers correct data if I bypass the error message.

    Another neat little application is ‘Network Info’ from ‘oddgravity’ software. No Framework and provides the same data (ping test excluded), at

    .NET Framework is pa pain in the neck.
