Windows 7 networking issue

When I try to ping a IP addrss, I get response that a different IP address is unreachable. However, there is 0% packet loss.

I am on a 192.168.x.x network. Why do I see "67.51.144.65" as unreachable when I am trying to ping 172.20.0.1...?

Can some please explain this behaviour on my Windows 7 PC?

>ping 172.20.0.1

Pinging 172.20.0.1 with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 67.51.144.65: Destination host unreachable.
Reply from 67.51.144.65: Destination host unreachable.
Reply from 67.51.144.65: Destination host unreachable.
Reply from 67.51.144.65: Destination host unreachable.

Ping statistics for 172.20.0.1:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

Thanks,

Thx.. So that explains why I am seeing the  67.51.144.65 (ISP) address instead of the 172.x address.

But, then why there is 0% loss of packets? How come all the sent packets are received?

because the packets were returned and marked "Destination host unreachable."
