    Cool IP address (not similar?)

    Hello, I've the following question:

    Why is there a difference between the two IP-addresses below:
    - My IP address at "ipconfig" (windows)
    - My IP address at whatismyip.com

    Why are above IP addresses not similar?

    Thank you,
    Dennis.

    Your internal (LAN) address. Used for computers on your own network to communicate with each other. Usually **2.*68.*.*

    Your external (Internet) address. Your router uses this address to communicate with the Internet, and multiple computers on the network communicate through the router to the Internet using NAT.
