Got this off the xenocafe.com site, let me know if it works for you:

Private Function isIP(ByVal ip As String) As Boolean
    Dim regex As New RegularExpressions.Regex("^(?:(?:25[0-5]|2[0-4]\d|[01]\d\d|\d?\d)(?(\.?\d)\.)){4}$")
    Return regex.IsMatch(ip)
End Function

darkhill  has it.
but this looks better.
Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions

 Private Function isIP(ByVal ip As String) As Boolean
        ' Return true if ip is in valid ip address format.
        Return Regex.IsMatch(ip, ("^(?:(?:25[0-5]|2[0-4]\d|[01]\d\d|\d?\d)(?(\.?\d)\.)){4}$"))
    End Function
