    Go to this URL from your computer and it will tell you your IP address:

    http://raynersoftware.com/my_ip.php

    But, depending on your router and network connection, does your IP address change each time you connect or reboot the router?

    Do you want 1) External IP 2) Internal IP

    External IP

    Simply go to http//www.whatismyip.com, and there's your IP address as you seen on the net

    Internal IP

    I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO THIS ON A MAC but...

    If your router is actings as a DHCP server, and you only have one computer attached to it, the likelyhood of the Internal IP being 192.168.0.2 is very very high, unless you have changed your DHCP range

    objectifier comments

    what objectifier means by your IP changing is whether you get you IP address dynamically from you ISP or whether you have a statis IP. Most ISP will allow you to have a static IP if you ask them.

    The question, why do you want your friends?
