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