    IP Address

    While checking for info for the thread "How many hops" in the scuttlebutt forum, I noticed an IP address that was producing the longest time but I could not identify it.

    It was <big>10.9.45.1</big>

    Tried to check it with Smart Whois but it didn't return any real info besides the fact that it was reachable.

    Am I just being "dense" here again or can anyone ID the IP for me?

    Re: IP Address

    The whole of the Class A block of IP addresses that starts 10. is private. That means that anyone can use any of these addresses for any purpose they want, but they won't be routed over the public Internet.

    If you see the address 10.9.45.1 on a tracert then it is almost certainly in your own premises.

    Re: IP Address

    Thanks, Stuart.

    I kind of figured it may have been right here but then I wonder just what is it ?

    ModemRouter?

    Re: IP Address

    In the UK, Telewest/blueyonder seems to use the 10.0.0.0 series for addressing their cable modems, as far as I am aware...

    Re: IP Address

    Bob,

    Can you tell us the physical configuration of your network, and let us know the first 3 or 4 IP addresses that you see on a tracert. Also which service provider do you use? This should let us work out what is at that address.

    Re: IP Address

    Stuart,
    It's just a single machine, no networking to others, connected via a NIC to a DSL Westell 2200 modemNAT router. Same as I've always had, no recent changes that I recall.
    Here's to first few tracert lines to WOPR.com

    Re: IP Address

    It looks like that address is either the ISP side of your router, or the first device on the ISP end of the link.

    Re: IP Address

    I sure don't pretend to know the answer, Bob, but I'm curious - what do you get if you do ipconfig /all?

    Re: IP Address

    Al

    ipconfig /all will obviously show the PC and then it will, if on wireless, show the IP of the router and any listed/allowed items currently "attached" to the router. My assignment is

    192.168.0.1 after that the IP's are attached as 192.168.02 the 192.168.03 etc the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. Looking at Bob's tracert the IP address comes after his router and therefore be outside his domicile <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: IP Address

    'tis true Sir, different piece of kit but it uses the Private set of IP addresses Stuart alluded to earlier on in the thread. My first hop after my router [192.168.0.1] is my broadband providers server(Tiscali) [212.74.111.5].

    So I would say the mystery 10.9.45.1 is either an peripheral between your router and your broadband server inside your house or somewhere in the broadband providers own area. or...... to start a conspiracy....you are being spyed upon by a Government agency who is reading all you internet traffic <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: IP Address

    Well, there is nothing between my router and my ISP in my house.

    Somewhere in the ISP own area? With Verizon, that's entirely a good possibility but they will NEVER admit to it.
    Spyed upon? Who knows these days.

    What ever it is, it IS slowing down my connect speeds.

    There must be some way to track this down? Is 007 still available?

    Re: IP Address

    Since you are running a router/modem, this extra IP address could be from the router side to the modem side of the hardware.

    Re: IP Address

    Dave,
    Would that apply to a NAT router also?

    Re: IP Address

    I do NOT know, but if you do not have a DSL modem there needs to be a interface of some type for the signal to talk to the router.
