You can only have a maximum of 2 IP's.
That would be your LAN IP (Local - Intranet) and your WAN IP (World - Internet).

If you are using Windows then the best way to find your IP settings out is to go to start / run --> type "cmd" (not including the "")
(a dos window will open up).

Then type "ipconfig /all" (again, not including the "")

I thought you *could* have multiple IP addresses per computer...

The term multihomed refers to a workstation or server that is configured with more than one TCP/IP address.

A computer that needs to register multiple IP addresses must use multiple network adapter cards.

Do you have a specific need that you wish to discuss?
