1. System Preferences > Network > click network device on the left hand side.
2. By router IP, I assume you mean external. If so, your router should have a record of that somewhere. If not, you can visit this page to get it quickly.

Open Terminal, type "ifconfig" (Interface Configuration)

For my setup, my wireless ended up being device EN1.

In Terminal, you can type "hostname"
Click on Finder and the machine name will be the top entry under Devices.
Use the System Profiler, click on "Software" on the left pane.
There are probably others as well.

Open up the Terminal and type 'hostname' and 'ifconfig' to get your name and IP address. Then visit your router with Safari/FF/Chrome and look at the IP address list to find yours and others..

sorry, not even one i tried that can see my computer name or maybe i see the wrong thing,

1) when i type "hostname" in the terminal, this came out "Users-MacBook-Pro.local"

2) in the Finder there is only two device "Macintosh HD" an "Idisk" there is none of my computer name in the network

3) i can find the System Profiler

sorry i am too new to mac

1. your Host name is "Users-MacBook-Pro.local" Take the ".local" off and you will have what you named it, or just left it named from install.
2. You may not have everything Visible, I do. You can enable that, however, in the Finder Preferences, Sidebar tab.
3. System Profiler is in the Utilities Folder in Applications.

Only by looking at the dhcp client list on your router.

Haha, and thanks.

You can use ANY browser to login to your router..There is no Internet Explorer for Mac..so use Safari or Firefox or Chrome..
