How to Find Alexa’s IP Address

Method 1: Using the Alexa App

Open the Alexa App: Make sure you’re on the same Wi-Fi network as your Alexa device.

Tap *Devices*: You’ll find this in the bottom bar of the app.

Select *Echo and Alexa*: This will show you a list of all your connected Alexa devices.

Select Your Device: Click on the specific Alexa device you want the IP address for.

Find the IP: Scroll down in the device settings and look for *About*.

Click on that and your Alexa’s IP address should be there.

Method 2: Checking Your Router’s Settings

Access Router Settings: Open a web browser and enter your router’s IP address into the address bar, something like 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0.

Log In: Enter the username and password required for your router.

Find Device List: Different routers call this different things, but look for options like *Connected Devices*, *DHCP Clients* or something similar.

Find Alexa: Devices are often listed by name. Look for your Alexa device by its recognizable name (*Living Room Echo* or just *Alexa*). The IP address will be next to it.

Why Might You Need Alexa’s IP Address?

Troubleshooting Connectivity Problems: If Alexa is having network trouble, knowing its IP address can help you narrow down whether the problem is device specific or wider network problems.

Advanced Network Settings: Some users with more technical knowledge want the IP address for applying specific firewall rules or setting up static IP assignments.
