If you refer to the IP Address of your current computer, you're looking for ifconfig and iwconfig.

For discovering other computers on the network, I like to use nmap. Example:

nmap 192.168.1.1-255

Be aware that scanning the network with nmap might be perceived as an aggressive act in company environments, so be sure to use this only if you have the permission to.

ifconfig -a if you are on the PC in question and need to know the IP of it; otherwise sudo nmap -sS 192.168.1.1/24

For your public IP, try this:

curl -s queryip.net/ip/

All the other answers are correct, depending on exactly what you're after. In addition wireless routers usually have a web management screen with "Current DHCP Leases", which tells you who is on your network. Or at least those that have been given an IP address - it does not tell you those that have allocated their own addresses for which nmap is the answer.
