I will be trying to sort out a simple problem with a colleague who uses Earthlink.
She has three time asked them for her IP address She has been given an address 172 xxx xxx xxx. Does not work. Pinged no response.
I have asked her to check with WHAT IS MY IP, as I did for my own and she came up with two addresses that did not work. Beginning 66.XXX XXX XXX. My guess one could her machine and the other the ISP's address for her.
I did a reverse check on the two numbers and they went back to Earthlink. The other went back I recal to some address in California
OrgName: Internet Assigned Numbers Authority OrgID: IANA Address: 4676 Admiralty Way, Suite 330 City: Marina del Rey StateProv: CA PostalCode: 90292-6695 Country: US
The other two addresses went back to Earthlink.
OrgName: EarthLink Network, Inc. OrgID: ERAD Address: 1375 PECHTREE ST, LEVEL A City: ATLANTA StateProv: GA PostalCode: 30309 Country: US
I reckon some support guy may have got it wrong with the 172 number, gave had information to my colleague.
Anyone any kind commens that may harbour a suggestion that will be helpful.
