    D-Link 904 Wireless router has 2 ISP IP's??


    Hello folks,
    I wonder if someone can enlighten me on this please. I checked my IP at whatismyip.com and it reported it as 87.113....... However, delving into the workings of my router I found the following in its log file
    Nov 20 20:56:52> WAN IP address 87.113.nn.nn
    Nov 20 20:56:52> WAN gateway 195.166.nn.nn
    both these IP's are from my ISP Plusnet.
    In particular I was wondering why the 195.166.... was not a local private IP. From the IFCONFIG listing I noticed that the 195.166.... IP is assigned to the wireless device. The router creates a bridge for the eth0 and tiwlan0 devices. Is this a waste of an IP or is it something more sinister such as Big Bro is watching??? Paranoid?!?

    Could just be that you got a new IP Address. Maybe your Dynamic IP's time was up and they gave you a new one.

    Thanks for your reply. No, I have 2 IP's from my ISP. One for the eth0 and 1 for the wireless tiwlan0 device. These are bridged as br0.
