Everytime I restart (or shutdown and load back up) My I.P address is different and just keeps changing.
Also my subnet Mask is all the same numbers:
I was just wondering, is this normal
My I.P address used to always be the same and my subnet Mask was different numbers but now this has happened.

yes, for the most part.

When you log onto the internet, your ISP assigns you an ip address using dhcp (dynamic host configuration protocal)

The subnet mask means you are a network of one--that's a funky subnet mask, though
