hello hennessy,

I believe you are using a router to connect to the internet. is this correct? The way it works is fairly straight forward, Your computer connects to the router and is given a number in order for it to be recognised(in this case 192.168.1.101) The router connects to the ISP and will be given a number in order to be recognised. When you view a site you identify yourself, as a result the information can be displayed back to you.

To give you some idea as to how much information you send out when viewing a page, have a look at http://www.danasoft.com/
Regards,

Alan.

Just to furthere confuse the issue - the 192.168.... is your internal, private LAN IP address
The one at Danasoft is your external, public WAN IP address

All of these terms are used to identify your computer - both on your home network and the internet.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

The second link put me on the other side of the country to where I am.

The connection must go through an ISP, sometimes these searches just show where the ISP lives.

Alan.
