Hi,

www.debianhelp.co.uk is a web site that automatically detects and displays your computer's IP address. This can be helpful for configuring a computer on a network, setting up communications software, or troubleshooting an Internet connection. Your Internet Service Provider or IT help desk may ask you to visit this site when you're having problems with your Internet connection

ipconfig /all

or, if your IP address is invalid (169.x.x.x) ipconfig/release, and once it all drops, ipconfig/renew... good old DOS

Yes, if you're behind a router you'll likely get an IP of 192.168.1.x, or something similar, whereas if you go to an online website it skips past the router and just reads from your computer.

A router creates a private home network, which prevents outside attack very well. (not perfectly, but very well).

But... because all the readings from your comptuer will be set to a private network (192.x.x.x), for internet assistance, don't be suprised if they ask you to bypass the router. After all, your home network is not their problem. lol.

Your router has 2 addresses.

It has the Internal address that starts with 192.168.x.x - that's for all the stuff inside the LAN (Local Area Network - all the computers hooked into the router)

And it has an External address which is what's seen on the internet when someone tries to reach your computer (and it's assigned to you by your ISP). It's not visible using ipconfig because the router's only seeing the network that it's connected to - and hasn't made the translation to the external address.

When a packet of information is sent to your computer, the router gets it first. It decides which computer on the network will get the packet and then sends it to it. Most of this is transparent to the user, but occasionally you'll get problems if there's a "hiccup" somewhere in the system.

If you've got a special program (like pcAnywhere, or an FTP server) that needs to be told how to do this - you'll use a feature called "port forwarding" - that forwards the ports that you've designated to a specific internal address - rather than letting the router decide.

Now that I've thoroughly confused the issue, let me restate:

A packet is how the information travels over the internet.

When a packet comes to you, it comes to your External address which is at your router. The router reads the packet and translates the address to the proper Internal address (which is your computer) and you receive the packet.

Try typing your IP address into the address bar of IE when you do get a 192.168.x.x.

This will let you into your router's config.. usually. Alot of problems involving connectivity can be handled in here. (might be password protected).
