Assuming you don't have a device with the ip address, I
would guess that you're either getting an IP from your DSL "modem"
(unlikely unless you somehow changed it's config and forgot about it),
or you're getting an address from someone in the same broadcast domain
as you (i.e. another DSL customer).

Use 'arp' to see what mac address is associated with  If
it's not one of yours, call your provider and ask them what to do if
one of your neighbors is running a DHCP server.
