In the older versions of OSX it was possible to get your wireless AP IP address by pressing the option key and clicking the networking button on the top bar, they seem to of removed the AP IP from the displayed info since. What is the new on-the-fly method in the new OS Catalina?

  • In Terminal, the following command will provide the information you're looking for, and a bit more too: system_profiler SPNetworkDataType If you just want the IP address of the Router, use: system_profiler SPNetworkDataType | grep 'Routers:' – user3439894 Oct 10 at 15:50
  • Would this be the quickest method of getting this info? – kr1pt0 Oct 10 at 16:00
  • You can also get it from: System Preferences > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced… > TCP/IP – user3439894 Oct 10 at 16:15

There are two options:

  • Click on topbar WIFI Icon -> Open Network Preferences and you can see IP Address below Status.

  • Open terminal and put: ifconfig | grep "inet "

  • The OP is asking for the wireless access point IP address, which neither of your suggestions do, they give the IP address of the Mac. – user3439894 Oct 11 at 12:27
