A friend of mine asked me to help him with his slow Internet connection.
Among other things I made a network check using Trumpet Hop Check.
Here are the results for the route to the nearest server:
1. 193.yyy.145.zzz local_Cisco_router.xxxxx.xxx (131 ms)
2. 192.168.145.1 <unknown> (382 ms) <- problem
3. 193.yyy.145.zzz nearest_server.xxxxx.xxx (385 ms)
Trace route finished - Port unreachable
There is a direct connection between these to servers. The 192.168.145.1
IP address should not exist. I this point there was a great delay in
time of the packets. I call the ISP and asked them some explanations.
They mumbled something about some problems with the router. Everything
is back to normal now but this IP address still exists there now matter
what the destination of the packets is.
Can anyone give me a hint? Is anyone using a sniffer? Is this a security
problem? Is this a problem for personal privacy?
Any help would be greatly apreciated.
Thanks in advance,
