I've never seen that before. That is an internet address, not a network one. You should see something like this -
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
C:\Documents and Settings\Tom>ipconfig
Windows IP Configuration
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

I don't really understand why your IP resolves to Burton-on-Trent when the addresses shown in your IPconfig are in Wales. You wouldn't be trolling would you?
Until you can get your internal network address sorted out, you will get nowhere. Sorry I can be of no more help.

I was hoping someone else would join in and explain why you are getting 2 legitimate Sky IP addresses for your network.
You could have a look in your router settings and see what address is shown for your LAN Port IP address. It should be 192.168.0.1. According to your Ipconfig it is going to be 22.214.171.124. If this is the case try resetting your router by pushing a pin in the reset hole at the rear for 30 secs.

I have tried pinging the 2 addresses and get a reply, which means they are both in use by Sky users. How you have ended up with them as a Local address beats me.

Something else worth checking (although you wouldn't be online if this was correct)...
Go into the connection properties and see if there is a static IP assigned to the IPv4 protocol, it should be on automatic and not the 90.x.x.x IP
