Hi all J I am new here, I have a query I would like to understand. I hope I have included all relevant info:
This is my setup
1) I have cable internet,
2) My cable modem is provided by my isp it is plugged into my router Linksys wrt54gs
3) From my router I have 3 pc’s connected one of them is wireless.
4) Router is set to assign dynamic ips,
5) And they all work fine.

My question is Imho I know that my router which is the def gatewayit is assigning me dynamic ip addressees that’s fine,

Which happens in Steps 1+2.

But steps 3 and 4 loose me, as does the routing entry table list I would really like to understand this especially in simple basic language, so an explanation would be most grateful.???

Step 1) PC1 ip =192.168.1.100
Step 2) Linksys the def router =192.168.1.1

Step 3) IP Address: 86.14.181.189
Step 4) Default Gateway: 86.14.180.

cable modems set up page I see this>>>>> IP address: 10.189.113.230 I guess this is called UBR.?

Yet on my Router setup page I see this list
Login Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP
IP Address: 86.14.181.189 <<<<<<<<<<<<<
Subnet Mask: 255.255.252.0
Default Gateway: 86.14.180.1
DNS 1 : 194.168.8.100

And I see this in my routing table entry list:

destination lan ip. sub mask . gateway . interface.
192.168.1.0 255.255.255. 0 0.0.0.0 LAN & Wireless
86.14.180.0 255.255.252. 0 0.0.0.0 WAN (Internet
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0. 86.14.180.1 WAN (Internet
