We had issues with one internet provider, and switched to another one. However, we received word that the new internet provider is somewhat affiliated with the previous.
When running a "what's my ip" query online, we see different results if we run it over an http link opposed to over an https link.
Over an http link, our ip is from a new subnet registered to the new company. Over https, our ip appears to belong to the subnet and ip range of our previous provider.
1- How would you explain this?
2- The new provider claims the old IP is somehow stuck in the buffer of our very own router, is that possible? How can we flush it? we already tried powering off then back on.
3- Is it possible our https commuications are being spied on? Like a man-in-the-middle attack?
4- Is it possible the new provider is cheating us and re-selling from the initial provider? at a higher price.
