When I get my IP address from Google, in most cases, it's a number like NNN.NNN.NNN.NNN (sometimes fewer than 3 Ns). It always is in that format. I noticed on this new wifi that my IP address is a completely different format according to Google (and
ipconfig). It's formatted like the below (different numbers and letters):
Eight numbers, four on each side of a colon:
Then five other colons, separated in four sets each separated by numbers and letters:
3i44:4n2n (and more)
In total, the format is like:
Nl represents either a letter or number
What does it mean when an IP is configured this way? In searching, I haven't found anyone posting an IP like this.
