Post Wrong IP

I'm running a raspberry pi and I've followed the instructions on how to update my IP from the pi ( however, this seems to result in the wrong IP being submitted.
The IPv4 is an address I don't know. The IPv6 seems to be the address of the pi itself and not the public IPv6 address. How can I make sure the right IPv4 address is transmitted, and how can I make the public IPv6 address submitted?

Any help would be most welcome

Best regards

Hope that helps,
