This might be your routers primary address but it is not your IP
address. Your real IP address does not begin with 192. and it is given
to you by the telephone company.
I can set my routers primary IP and I always set mine at
and they are always pingable.

I always use DHCP for my computer. This way the computer queries the
router and it sends a IP number for the computer to use.

What it means is your router isn't using 22.214.171.124 and that is a
strange number. On my 2 wire router they start at 192.168.0.1 and work
up. Same on my Belcon router/Wi-Fi system. I use DHCP on everything.

In the past, after and upgrade or new install, have found settings not as should be. Thanks for jumping in. BTW, ATT says I'm not connected to the network on the wifi and that's why I can't establish a connection at http://192.168.1.254. Doesn't seem likely to me but that's what they say. How does one determine if they are connected to another wifi network besides there own? Anything else just ask and thanks so much for the help.

You should be able to get on your 2 wire router with Firefox and
set/change your internal ip numbers. It will also tell you what your
REAL ip number is. All the ip numbers you quote in this email are
internal numbers to your routers.
