Because you are using a device which performs NAT, you have to query that
device to find out the real IP; there is no way on a machine within the
private NAT'ed subnet to get external information without asking externally.
However, if you connect your machine directly to the aDSL modem rather than
using a firewall/router, you could run ifconfig on your machine and see the
real IP. You'd probably have to configure pppoe which can be a pain, and your
typical Linksys broadband router already does a good job of handling that.
