I did look up this issue and did see another forum about it; mostly dealing with IPV4 vs. IPV6 settings…and some technical details that mostly went over my head. I’ll admit that my technical know-how is not focused on computer programming; I’m not a novice, but am probably less knowledgeable than most on these forums.
I am not so much concerned about the inner function of my computer that is allowing this. I assume that if this is a legit function, that my ISP making this change for some reason. I am mainly wondering if these addresses look normal and if I should be concerned about this notification being a signal that my computer is being eavesdropped on. Is there a way to tell that (with more investigation) from this notification, i.e. if it is malware or benign?
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium: The message that I get is:
"DNS address connection Realtek PCI GBE Family Controller was changed."
New: “fec0:0:ffff::1” Old: “192.168.0.1”
When this happens, the addresses flip/flop with the time stamp (instant). I’m pretty sure that the addresses flip/flop between these same two addresses every time.
