IP Address
« on: July 27, 2010, 09:58:48 AM »
Alx referred me here for my question.  Is there a reason my ip address is different today than it was yesterday even though I'm still at home and on the same computer?

Your service provider probably uses what is called 'dynamic IP addressing'.  Basically, every time that you connect to the service, you are assigned one of a range of IP addresses that the company has assigned to it.  If you get disconnected and then reconnect, chance are you'll get a different one in the same range.  You'll probably notice that at least the first two portions of the IP address are the same - maybe even three, depending on how small your service provider is.

If you'd like to know what your outward facing IP is then there are several websites that can show you.

What is my IP?

Or, for those who like women to tell us our IP addresses

... That last one is certainly... interesting.

I didn't think it'd do exactly what it'd say it'd do. XD
