I might be mistaken but I don't think a switch will have an IP.

Client systems attached to it will have IPs. If there is a router upstream of the switch, that would have an IP.

As Richard say, switches don't have an IP address. They do have a MAC address which is something entirely different.

Well, just to be precise guys, switches can, and often do have IP's. But I'm talking managed switches here and I doubt the OP is.

Even if he is, there's no way to know the IP of the switch unless it also happens to be the gateway for that network, or network segment (ipconfig /all would show the gateway IP in that case), or, you're a network technician like I am and knowing that information is just part of your job. In an enterprise environment, nobody other than guys like me need to know, or really care I'm sure....lol
