Tonight’s Internet access was annoyingly slow so I thought of recycling my ADSL connection. Out of habit I opened up WhatIsMyIP.us and was presented with a weird IP.
The top text with black background is the actual IP my router was assigned with (126.96.36.199).

What the hell is wrong? Since TMNET has the reputation of doing stupid things right now I am thinking that they are testing some kind of HTTP bypassing. This is because the other traffic that I tested was not affected (e.g. SSH and FTP) and I see my “real” IP fine.
Anyone else is experiencing this twilight-zone scenario?
