of the wifi?
The WiFIRE Controller has a MAC Address, which is the hardware address that is used to assign a corresponding IP Address by the DHCP Server running on your Router ... once your WiFIRE Controller is connected to a Wi-Fi Network, go to Menu->Settings->Wi-Fi Information to see the MAC Address ... with that piece of information, you can log into the management console (web browser or app) of your Router and figure out what IP Address has been assigned to that specific MAC Address ...

Is there a reason you want to know the IP Address?

When you run your Fing app does it show one that is Espressif Inc? If so that's your Traeger WiFire.
