I don't need it for this scan. If I need my Internet IP I simply check
my router. If I need a customer to tell me his/her internet IP I simply
have them go to

Besides, if I go to it won't tell me anything. My DSL
modem is set to bridge mode and my lans are run on different subnets
than 192.168.0.x. The _only_ way that I can connect to from a browser is if I reconfigure a machine to be on
the 192.168.0.x network. In your case your machine is configured for so you are on the same subnet as your DSL modem; hence you
can and see the modem's web interface.
