Different Ips what is this mess?

December 17, 2010 at 14:21:44
Specs: Windows 7
My wall outlet has a port for Ethernet cable. When I connect my PC via Ethernet cable to the wall I obtained an IP address. (I went to what is my IP address and it belongs to direcpath my ISP) However when I introduce a Linksys router and connect my PC into it, I discover my IP address now is different similar set of number but different. This 2nd IP according the website, also belongs to direcpath my ISP.

Which one is in fact the one using my computer at the time I send emails?
How can I discover if my IP is static or dynamic?

The reason? Because I paid for Static IP and because both IPs the one I found when I conected PC to wall only and the one IP I got when I connected the PC to the router are both black listed.

Thank you People.

There are no private ips that are black listed.

"This 2nd IP according the website, also belongs to direcpath my ISP"

That is not correct. The 2nd ip is that provided by the router and would be private ip.

How are you checking these ip addresses?
When you setup your router what did you set the wan interface to? dhcp or static?

Wanderer,
Thank you.

The 1st IP address (When connecting the PC-wall ethernet outlet) and
the 2nd IP address (When connecting the PC to Linksys rounter-Wall outlet)

Were found by using www.whatismyipaddress.com
I black list checked BOTH number and both are blacklisted with (SERBS & SPAMHAUS) both belong to Direcpath

The reason why I solicited static IP was to have a clean IP so my emails can reach my clients.

Someone suggested DSL but I can't connect DSL here because the building is managed by Direcpath for TV, Tel and internet.

I did not do anything to the router and have no idea how to do DHCP or static. I just know that the way to access it is by typing 192.168.1.1

Thank you

when you check your ip online the only ip that they can see is your wan ip which is provided by the isp.

Since you got two different ips, you don't have static ip from the isp.

Usually ips are blacklisted in a group/range. If this group belongs to the isp there is no way they can give you a ip address that is not blacklisted.

I would talk to the isp about this blacklisting. It would be my take if they are blacklisted then the contract is null and void.
