My IP changed at around 1:20 AM last night from 24.x.x.x to 184.x.x.x. Interesting.... I've seen 24. and 68.(?) but never heard of the 184. block being used. It may be new because speedtest.net can't even geolocate me other than knowing I'm in Canada.

This is pretty common. With IPv4 addresses running out, ISP's are using new blocks. I believe some are sometimes recycled from other countries.

For a while Google had my Primus IP in Africa so I was getting all these weird overseas Google ads.

You should consider yourself lucky you didn't wind up with one of the RFC1918 "private" addresses as some ISPs are providing. If you get one of those, it means the ISP is using NAT, which will break many things even worse that using NAT on your own network does.
