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."
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
