I very much doubt it.
10.x.x.x addresses are in the private address range
Has your friend done an ipconfig /all to see what is going on?

You don't need a NAT router to obtain a 10.x address from DHCP.

What model device is he using to connect to teh intarwebtubes ?

I do know that some ISPs in the USA do this, thay basicly run a NAT router so as to need less public IP address.

I have only seen ISPs issue private addresses to the PPP connection on dialup as a way of restricting access when accounts are overdue - never seen it on adsl before.

What modem is your friend using to connect?

It is used here in New Zealand as well on other "providers". Vodafone does it on its most popular APN... They assign 10.x.x.x. addresses on the web APN - causes lots of problems for people who need a non-private IP, in which case the recommend APN is "internet".

I knew I had had a 10.x from an ISP before, but couldn't remember who - thanks for jogging my memory.

So where is IPv6 ?
