That's because this thread isn't here tongue.

Rep:
there was a big BT outage tonight, which saw a lot of people unable to authenticate properly. Sometimes when the authentication equipment in BT or at PN is overwhelmed, you'll end up in the BT walled garden. That IP might be what you've been allocated for the walled garden.
Technical explanation by ANO:
It's a Class B network IP address and you got it because there was a glitch somewhere that caused a number of users to lose connection - it hasn't emerged if it was a BTw or Plusnet issue.

It's the same range of IP addresses that you get if you log on with speedtest@speedtest_domain for the TAP3 test on BTw, or if you try the bt_test@startup_domain or the bt_test_user@plusdsl.net test log-ins. You have to all intents and purposes been given a WAN IP address that belongs on a LAN, and therefore cannot access the external internet.
