Tip of the Week: Know your Microsoft Surface Network Information
In this week’s tip, I want to call your attention to a little piece of software in the Windows Store called “What’s IP“. It displays your network addresses conveniently on a live tile where they’re easy to find.
There are several reasons why you may need to know your network address on your Microsoft Surface. If you click on the tile, the app also will give you information about your network usage over the past couple of days.
There is also a Pro version of the application available from the store for less than $3 USD. That version is a little more “geek-centric” and has additional network tools including a subnet calculator and port scanner.
