192.168.22.X on public internet?
Posted on 2009-07-16
Trying to figure out why a client's internet is slow-did a tracert from there to a few webservers, and noticed that after packets are handed off from office router to Covad, it passes thru routers with 192.168.22.122 and 192.168.22.73 addresses. (As a routine matter, when setting up client networks, I use different numbers for the third octet in each case so that I can connect via VPN if at one client and get an emergency call from another). Seems to me that the above numbers should NOT be used by Covad equipment! Just fortunate that I haven't used .22. on any other clients, or I might have run into problems earlier. Can someone confirm that the Covad numbering above should NOT be used on the public internet?
