Why a static IP

When my iphone got my home wifi initialing got an IP like 192.168.x.x, but after few minutes that IP switch into a static IP like 248.135.x.x (my router is a Motorola).

 

Is this normal?

 That's not a static IP, I think it's the public IP of your cell carier!

Per the ip lookup tool at speedguide.net, 248.135.xxx.xxx - IP address is in a reserved range.

 

Are you sure it's not picking off a 3G or 4G cell system?

  do a what's my IP..

?

248.135.x.x is the self-assigned ip when your phone lost the connection to your network.
