I used Tracert -d <ip Address> to see the route to the target address. After running Tracert, I noticed that the first IP address was 192.168.4.1. The first IP address is my router. There are about 10 entries (hops) listed after executing my tracert command. After the router, the hops are displayed and then the 10th entry is the IP address of the destination.
While looking at the list of hops, I noticed that the 9th entry has 192.168.1.82 listed as the IP address. Why would an IP address like this, a non-routable IP address, show up on the list of hops? It would make sense to me if the IP pattern was similar to the subnet pattern for my router but it is slightly different in the 3rd octet. Do you have an idea why this IP address would appear prior to my destination IP address, and especially if it looks like it is an internal non-routable IP address? Where would it come from?
