The previous problem is fixed I replaced the driver 8188eu.OK But
when I reboot the address on the wlan0 is 192.168.0.17 outside my
I can't figure out where that com from?
I can change the address manually (ifconfig wlan0 192.xxx) and it stay,
but if I reboot.
Many thanks in advances

It seems to me that it is your IP address toward the outside
Internet. You cannot go there using the RFC1918 addresses.
Your internal network (192.168.xx.yy) belongs to a RFC1918
private address group.
My guess is that the address is assigned byu DHCP from your
... its normal for an ISP to set the address used to contact whatever
device i.e. firewall or ADSL front end that talks directly to your ISP,
but I've never heard of an ISP setting an RFC1918 address, which is, or
should be, on the *inside* of your gateway device and set by yourself
using an internal connection to it.
My setup works that way: the only difference is that my ISP owns a block
of IP addresses and so was able to assign a static external address to my
ADSL router, which is connected over a PSTN copper cable. Internally,
I've assigned static RFC1918 addresses to the devices on the inside, on
the same subnet (192.168.7.*), which therefore interconnects my ADSL
router/firewall, computers, internet Radio box and printer. These are all
linked using a switch box and CAT5 cable.
Since your system sounds to be somewhat different to mine, it would help
if you describe:
- the connection between ISP and your house and what type of connection
it is: copper (ADSL), FTTC, FTTP, wifi,...
- what device terminates that link at your end
- and how you've configured the computers, printers etc inside your
- the network inside your house (IPV4 or IPV6, wifi or cable).
- since you seem to have been running ok on IPV4, why you're playing
Your router should be giving your Pi (and all other computers on your local
network, whether connected by wifi or Ethernet) addresses of the form
192.168.x.y. If your Pi is not getting a 192.168.x.y address, something is
You could use a site such as
Up Probe My Ports" which will tell you your router's WAN (public internet)
address - look for the text "If several of the numbers from your current IP
address" on the page.
I wonder if that address is 196.x.254.27 or similar.
That will show whether your Pi is somehow being given a public address
instead of a private LAN address.
Check also that the Pi is definitely connecting to your own router's wifi
network and not to a neighbour's.
Also, if you can, connect the Pi by Ethernet to the router (you may need to
disable wlan) and see if the same thing happens.
Some ISPs operate an RFC-1918 network for their customers and use
NAT to map it onto a much smaller range of real IP addresses - "carrier
grade NAT" they call it. Then you run NAT on your boundary router and you
can forget about anything coming in.

Me also. I've also found that "whats my ip" also works with Brave 1.26.74
+ Duck Duck Go search engine and Firefox 89 + IXQuick search engine.
System system upgraded to Fedora 34 last Saturday, so these are current
web browser versions.
Ars Technica reported on Firefox 90 today, and like it, so maybe next
