having the same isssue.  I'm in Ontario...My IP address is listed in NB.   This is causing a problem with some websites, that are seeing that I'm not in Ontario.   I won't be changing my modem as suggested, because that is just ridiculous.  Somehow my IP address was changed in the background, so it needs to be changed back in the background...just need someone who knows how to do it

Re: IP address wrong location

Another member suggested that while at home, I open all apps on my devices that use GPS, which I did. The problem was fixed in a couple of days.

thought I found a quick way to fix this....ipconfig/release and then ipconfig/renew     see  https://helpdeskgeek.com/networking/release-and-renew-an-ip-address/

 

now when I do it speed test, it shows me picked up by a local server, but when I go to whatsmyip and search it, it says I'm in the wrong province....my GPS is constantly on.....so frustrated

My situation...,

 I play pokerstars for real money.

on two occasions the past week, pokerstars kicked me out while in the middle of a game , message was we don't allow real money games in your area! (canada does allow real money games however the USA does not).

After checking my IP location, the first time it was Jacksonville Florida, now today it says I am in Texas!!

 

I have been kicked out of two tournament games ($100)

For some reason the assigned IP from my router thinks were in a different country and is hiding shows in Canada on netflix.
