help i dont understand

tagurit asked 2 years ago

why is it that when i come here to see my ip address its different than the ip adress thats left on certain forums that i post to all during the same online session?
I have an aol type provider with dial up so i know i get different ones but why is for example not a real number-203.12.457.97 acording to this site right now but if i let a post on another site it shows it as example-203.212.35.768? shouldnt it be the same?

try ctrl+F5 when you go to whatismip.com, see if that changes it

sometimes the web browser's cache will give you misleading readings... although I haven't experienced that directly with whatismyip.com...

SAME session? you're not looking at a post that you made when you dialed up last time, maybe?

that's an interesting problem...
