My wireless router displays ip addresses as 10.0.0.5 instead of 192.168.1.1


Instead of displaying regular ip addresses my router is listing them as 10.0.0.5+ Is it just this particular comcast router or are they changing the addresses to a different format?
Or do I need to make some changes in the router?

No Eddy, neither. My old router used to display 10.0.0.1 and that was nearly 10 years old before I got me new one for Christmas.

I don't know if it is normal for a new router I just know it isn't something new as my old (10 year old now) router was the same from day one. Do you get access to the things you need with it? If you do then I wouldn't worry unless there is a security risk involved.

I think this will give you an explanation.
In short: All is OK, you router is acting normally.

Ok I uninstalled all of the old hp wireless printer entries in mac osx10.6 & added printers & it worked.
Btw all of the threads that I've seen for Hp officejet pro 8500 premier said that this printer doesn't work in linux but it does atleast the wireless printing does haven't tried the usb printing since it failed to print via usb.
