A ping odity ?

I have run a couple of ping/ speed tests just now. They report the IP address as 31.185.190.xxx but my router monitor reports 146.90.122.xxx.
The former's WHOIS refers to PN dial up.
Please dis-confuse or combobulate me!  Grin
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

That is very bizarre indeed
I can confirm your current IP address assigned is the 31.185 one but the 146.90 was from your previous session
If its causing any issues I'd recommend rebooting your router

Did you ping by IP address or host name, as in...?
Ping -a hostname
Could this be a matter of a DNS cache having not yet updated with the new IP address / routing tables?
