Go to [start] then [run] then type CMD, hit ok. Type IPCONFIG in the command prompt, and that will give you your IP address.

I don't know what you mean by 'black boxes', but everything you do on the net can be seen by your ISP and is recorded depending on where you are.

(CMD applies to NT4, Win2000 and XP only)

If you have something lower than XP, ME, or 2000, then put run command and type winipcfg OR if you have a unix machine type nslookup hostname

Even if you have XP you can still track it down through the Control Panel.
