IP Geolocation

Post by danlee58 »

I have Windows 10 desktop, Laptop, a cable modem, and a router & several WiFi devices in my system. My ISP provides a Dynamic IP address, but it's not Geolocated in my area. As a result, apps that need my location are wrong. I need to change my IP address to one in my area. I will switch to a Static IP address, when I can get one that is Geolocated nearby.

How can I find an IP address Geolocated in my area?

The simple thing would be to find an ISP that is located in your area and switch to them. The other solution would be to find a proxy service that has a location in your area.

The last option might be to get a static IP address and then have your ISP register the IP address with ARIN (or other authority) so that it is correctly assigned to your actual location.
