Strange ip

Post by qim »

Hi

I googled for my IP and after checking it online it stated that it is in Russia! I am in Andorra...

I decided to test it again connecting directly to the ISP box, rather than the Netgear router and got a different IP, this time belonging to my provider.

Now, I am coming to understand that the router gives its own IP but how come Russia? Am I being hacked?

Thank you

What is the IP issued to you by your ISP and what is the IP issued by your netgear router?
