If you have 4 or so connected to a router... they all have the same IP number on the WAN (internet) side. On the LAN (your home) side they each have a different UP address which is probably assigned by the router (DHCP server). The router uses the NIC (network card) MAC address to route stuff to the right PC.
If that is the case... and all four PC's sent messages to CH.com (as long as you don't log off and back on)... the message board would report all four as having the same IP address.
