    My WAN IP address is not the same as external IP

    I’m sorry for that I’m not very knowledgeable about these issues.

    Is there a negative impact on my connection?? such as ping vs online games.

    my modem wan ip 100.110…

    This is normal. Most modern broadband modems are also NAT routers, meaning, they get assigned one WAN/Internet IP from your Internet provider, and they are able to serve multiple private/internal IP addresses to client PCs/devices. Those internal IPs are only for your local network, they are not routable to the internet. The modem/router then translates each packet to the external ip, combining traffic for your multiple devices to send out using the one external/WAN IP.

    I hope this helps.

    What I see in router screenshot the WAN IP is 100.110.144.226 but in second screenshot, I see the IP starts from 95.70.xx.xx ?

    Ah, ok.. What your router shows as WAN IP is still a "private" address:

    100.64.0.0 ~ 100.127.255.255 (100.64.0.0/10 prefix) carrier-grade NAT communication between service provider and subscribers

    It appears your ISP is using NAT, essentially sharing that 95.70.*.* external IP between subscribers.
