I haven't had my computer on for about 3 days, and today when I booted up, my network connection seemed to be hijacked ... I think. Anyways, I couldn't connect to my local DSL provider, but I was able to check the properties of my network connection and the IP address was completely different than the one I know I am supposed to be connected to. The IP address was 169.254.237.245 and the subnet was 255.255.0.0 ... now is there a program that would tell me who that IP address belong to? just curious as to how that got changed. I reset my DSL modem and ZoneAlarm Security Suite and refreshed my IP address to get back to my normal connection. Any ideas would be helpful ...thanks. :scratch:

Thanks for responding. One other quick question ... is there a program that would tell me who owns that IP address? Could it have come from a website that tried to attack me? I am at a loss as to how my IP address was changed (my NIC configuration) without me knowing ... still :scratch: trying to figure it out ...

DNS STUFF

I can't find the link to the one I used to use all the time...

But that one is cool. :thumbup:

Paste the IP address into the IPWHOIS Lookup box, then click WHOIS

In some ways this link is better that the one I used to use... More "stuff""...
:)

P.S....

Micah ... Thanks again for your kind help. As you may know, I am learning (just starting actually, not enough time to read everything just yet, but will find it soon ...) and I want you to know that I appreciate your time and help. I do remember from another forum about some program that could tell you something about who owned the IP addresses, but I can't find that link either ... oh well, what you have provided is interesting and I will still work on how that particular problem came about. God Bless!!

WHOIS

There's a free WHOIS utility.

I haven't tried it, so I can't guarantee results.
