It's called a MAC address.

So you have two IP addresses? What IP address shows if you go to ?

Because I see your 'secret' IP IS in your mail headers:
X-Originating-IP: []

So, if this 'second' IP address is some hidden secret, it's not 
hiding. What's your 'other' IP?

Sounds like Cox simply uses DHCP, but assigns the IP address based on 
your mac address. I've had DSL where I've kept the same IP for 
months. No big deal, I use a dynamic dns client.
