strange IP on boot up

when I turn on my computer and log onto the internet, I will get these messages in system log of muy NAV2008

Protecting your connection to a newly detected network on adapter "NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller" (IP address: 192.168.1.64).

then within 45-60 seconds the following message

IP address 192.168.1.64 has disappeared and is no longer being protected.

then a few seconds later  I'll get my IP address from my ISP

what does this mean?

Are you on wireless?

Re: strange IP on boot up

This means just what it says.  Your adapter had the first IP address (could be from your router only) and then later your gateway was switched to your ISP and they assigned you a new IP address.  This is normal and is not a problem.

Re: strange IP on boot up

192.168.x.x is a local network address, meaning it is on your side of your modem.  It is therefore either your modem, router or another device on your network.  These addresses are not routable on the internet so there is zero chance that it is coming from anything outside of your local network.  You can read about ip addresses that are reserved for private networks here:

Re: strange IP on boot up

Perfectly normal.  And no, you did not disclose anything here as the 192.168.x.x is 99.9999% of the time used for an internal network between your computer and your router / modem.  Just about everbody has this address at one time or another.  The address your ISP provides for you should NOT be posted however.
