Question Same IP address showing for everyone??

When I view "Who's Online" it shows the same IP address for all members and guests. The IP address is the physical address for my domain.
It was working great up until 2 hours ago. As far as I know, nobody made any changes in the Admincp.
Do you know how to resolve this issue? I'm using 3.7.3


BTW, I'm a new user. Sorry if this a stupid question, but thank you in advance for answering it.

If it shows that, make sure your server is not proxying the traffic to it. It may be better to ask your host.

I called my Host and asked this question. They said that nothing has changed on their end and that no proxy was being used. Thanks for the heads up though.

Problem is still present.

The solution here solved my problem. I have no access to php.ini so my host did it for me.

I'm glad they helped you. I use Yahoo web hosting which has to be the worst hosting company in the world by far. Hopefully the issue will correct itself after we move to a new provider.
Thanks for the heads up!

P.S NEVER USE YAHOO WEB HOSTING!

I never did find out why this started or how to resolve it. I did however come across a Mod that fixes the issue completely. I would suggest trying it if you have this same issue. It worked great within seconds of installing it.

Thanks to the coder!

I've been watching this thread since it started, Bill, cuz I've got the same (strange) issue, which isn't a real big deal for me but might be for others. It definitely has something to do with Yahoo Web Hosting, no doubt in my mind. As far as I can tell, the issue started when Yahoo made this announcement:

Yahoo is the worst hosting company in the world by far. There answer to everything is, "It's you're fault", or "We suggest you find another host". No wonder why people are starting not to like them anymore. They stink.
