To be able to play Warcraft 3 using any Wc3 Lan Emulator You need to know Your or other people's IP adress.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a numerical identification (logical address) that is assigned to devices participating in a computer network utilizing the Internet Protocol for communication between its nodes. Although IP addresses are stored as binary numbers, they are usually displayed in human-readable notations,such as 184.108.40.206 (for IPv4), and 2001:db8:0:1234:0:567:1:1 (for IPv6). The role of the IP address has been characterized as follows: "A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there.

There is two ways to see Your IP address in windows.
First is by My opinions easyest, simple go to:

In command prompt type ipconfig, it will show You all information about IP address, DNS and other network information's. (same is for Vista and Win7)
Second is easy but not so fast as first, You will need to go to:
Control Panel > Network Connections, then right click on Your Lan connection and select Satus.
Go to Support tab and there You will see Your IP Address.
For Ubuntu just go to Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal), and enter command:
