IP Address Location Wrong

Message 4 of 4

This may have been mentioned before, and it’s more annoying than problematic but I’m currently based Greater Manchester and whenever I search for anything such as restaurants, weather, business etc, it is automatically bringing up my location as Blackpool. When testing my broadband speed it also shows my location as Blackpool. This is only since I switched to Talk Talk, is there a way I can reset or change this so it shows my actual location?

Hi GMW52,


Could you try switching your router off for 30 minutes then switch back on and check to see if your location has changed. Please let us know how you get on

Well I’ve reset my router and it now shows Liverpool rather than Blackpool. Still very wrong however.

 

Like I say, it isn’t an issue, just annoying at times.

What does it say when you check a lookup e.g. https://whatismyipaddress.com/
