Weird WINS address

Our remote dial-in and VPN clients are hving problems connecting to the domain and mapping drives.

Our PDC is also our WINS server.
Today I looked in there and there's not only the WINS IP address that should be there.  There is this other address that I have no idea about.  It's 1.9.0.184.  This address has NOTHING to do with our DHCP scope or any addresses on our network.  Could this be why we are having some random problems?

Windows NT Server 4.0 SP6a

Thanks!!!!!

Is this address in the TCP/IP properties or in the WINS admin?
