How do you get this indication?
How do you get this indication i.e. you computer telling that you are in chicago instead of indiana?
when i go to different web sites they say go to this store in chicago.
for instance, which website asks you this?
like this morning i was looking for gps and typed that in to my internet exployer and it came up with walmart and kmart and other stores all around the chicago area instead of around indiana where i live. it didnt always do this i may have changed something and dont know it
do you use google for this?
I mean searching for the stores etc?
im not sure i use what comes up on my internet provider which is comcast i just cked it is google
Actually, your IP address is something that determines your location
your computer has an IP address from which the website that you access can determine your location
let me research on why are you getting the error
open the link that I pasted above to see what location it detects
let me know
once you open the page, scroll down to to IP Country and City
what city has it detected?
ok please open the following link
when the page is open, find and click on the link that says IP Address Lookup
and click it
let me know when you are done to this point
I have looked up the IP that your computer is showing
and it is giving city as Chicago
check the above link
yes thats what i am getting to
You have to contact your Internet service provider about this
is that comcast
So it is the IP that is giving your location as chicago
COMCAST CABLE COMMUNICATIONS INC
I think there server is configured for Chicago may be
you have to check this with them
So its the IP address that is culprit of you indicating as living in Chicago whereas actually you are living in Indiana
comcast has to change the ip address
Yes they can resolve this IP address issue
