    Ifconfig en0 will show the IP address/networking info for the ethernet interface on your Mac. To run the command, open up Terminal (Applications > Utilities) and type in "ifconfig en0".

    you need to open a terminal window. Go to applications>utilities and double click on 'terminal' then enter 'ifconfig en0' which is a *ix command to show the configuration of interface named en0, which is ethernet device zero. You don't want any kind of search box.
