If you want to use the Tor browser to access devices on your LAN, you
must configure it appropriately. In the "Network" tab of "Preferences /
Advanced", hit the "Settings" button under "Connection". Then add your
LAN address range in the "No Proxy for" box and save.
That would be something like "localhost, 127.0.0.1, 192.168.1.0/24". The
IP in your question (188.8.131.52) is however not a private IP address.
It apparently belongs to Group Health Cooperative in Seattle, WA.
