What is my (real) IP?

Want to know how the rest of the world sees you, behind your router/proxy?
Go to www.whatismyip.com.
They also have a nice explanation of the ipconfig command here.

How can I hide my IP without slowing my connection?

There are a couple of ways to do that:
1. Use online sites such as http://www.hidemyass.com or one of the online proxies you can find here: http://compnetworking.about.com/od/proxyserversandlists/tp/anonymousproxy.htm
2. Alternatively, you can use softwares that will act as proxies such as TOR (The Onion Router) which you can find here http://tor.eff.org/ or TORPark - a FireFox version that comes with TOR built in.
There are some other applications such as HideIP but they cost money ($29) and slow you down a bit.
