I recently installed, then right away uninstalled a VPN...
But my network has been left in a somehow unstable state....
And one time tonight, when I refreshed my browser I got "destination unreachable" error...
when I try to ping "192.168.0.1" (which I thought was my router IP, turn out it is not, it is 192.168.1.1) I get:
Reply from 188.8.131.52: Destination net unreachable.
Where is this IP coming from?
I recall there is some kind of host file somewhere in win32 folder, can someone refresh my memory on where and which it is, please?!
That IP is most likely the primary IP on your home router; the address on your provider's network (it's likely the DG for the 192.168.1.0 network, and 192.168.0.0 is non-routable by design). This is assuming that you're not too far outside the box in terms of home network design.
