Hi All, I am just curious. I am in a coffee shop using the internet. My (external) IP address in this coffee shop ( given by whatismyip.com) is the same as the IP address assigned to me at home by my ISP. I thought IP addresses are assigned dynamically when one logs into a network and the network used by the coffee shop is not the same as that of my ISP. How is that so? Doesn't a DHCP server assign an address dynamically when I log in and then remove it from circulation when I log of ? Thanks.
