my computer is attached to a router. the router is attached to a cable modem. i'd like to get the IP address obtained from the ISP, not the the local IP scheme (i.e. 192.168.0.x).

also, how can VB tell whether the puter's IP is from a local scheme or directly obtained from an ISP?

my application needs to know what the IP address from the ISP is whether or not it's attached to a router.
