Running 2.0.6:

My who's online usually works greats, but sometimes it's showing/counting multiple instance of a member (who has logged in), usually 2 twice but with the same ip address.

Lately, however, it's showing/counting one member 7 times, each with a different ip address (actuallyl on the last 2-3 digits of the ip address is different)!

Anyone know what's wrong?

I also have the same problem with two IP assigned to one person especially when I just login. It would show my name and anonymous to the same IP.

This is caused I believe by the spiders that are spidering your site. Do a trace route (tracert if on windows)and they should end up at the same source.

I don't think its a spider because she's member who is actually logged in to our site (and have posted stuff).

A few things, dynamic DSL IPs, proxy servers, and cache. I never cache the Whois block. I don't recall ever seeing logged in users multiple times but have seen the IP change.

We never cache the Whois block either.

Yep, it's weird -- and it's driving me nuts to see her username appear 7 times on our Whois block.
