It appears to be an IPv6 address. Unfortunately there are no geolocation database providers that support IPv6 at this time that I am aware of.

@Kalina
as Chrispcritters said it's an IPv6. Unfortunately there is NO valid definition for a mapping from IPv4 (as we know) to IPv6. However, the mapping is normally done as follwing (IPv4 has 4 bytes, IPv6 has 16 bytes, each byte has 2 hex digits, a hex is symbolized by a x or X):
Ipv6-byte 0...9: hexadecimal x00
Ipv6-byte 10, 11: hexadecimal xFF (or xff)
Ipv6-byte 12: IPv4-byte 0
Ipv6-byte 13: IPv4-byte 1
Ipv6-byte 14: IPv4-byte 2
Ipv6-byte 15: IPv4-byte 3
The writting convention is: x00 can be omitted and 2 bytes are grouped together. Your posted IPv6 is 2001::4137:9e76:2c65:368a:3f57:fe9b
or: 2001:0000:4137:9e76:2c65:368a:3f57:fe9b = true IP6 or in other word: not a mapped IPv4 8-)

(note: dec.10 = a or A in hex, 11 = b or B, ..., 15 = f or F)

...supposed your IPv6 is a mapped IPv4 then your IPv4 could be x3f.x57.xfe.x9b or in plain English 63.87.254.155 and WIMA says http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/63.87.254.155

@Kalina
....Your speaking Greek to a lady that only knows how to speak with a Southern Drawlllllll...........
I thought I spoke Chinese ;) anyway, always at your service, my Southern drawled lady.

Now I try in southern drawl: The number of Internet-users increases steady. The IP we are familiar with covers only 4,294,967,296 users. The earth is crowded around 6,000,000,000 earthlings. That means if every earthling demands an access to the web our beloved Internet will explode into pieces...because we live in a crazy "democracy" our "UNO" must do something before the earthlings revolt. It invented the IPv6 by doubling the IP-number (4*4=16) that gives the UNO a big folk of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 earthlings. Probably in the year 3000 we could have an IPv32 = doubling of IPv6 = 3,4 * 10 power 38 (37 zeros behind the last 4) and your offsprings could live on Mars or on the Moon... ;)

LOL Tooo funny! :)

All I know to say is thank gawd I wont be around in the yeard 3000, cause I am confused enough on this machine as it is, and you made it seem/sound sooooo much more confusing :) No offspring grands so none to have to worry about in future years...

Again thank you......

@Kalina, my Southern drawled Lady :D

glad that you LOLed 'cause laughing is healthy. You know, a smile means a lot of things. For instance: if your boss is unfriendly you just smile when you see him. That makes him thinking and if you do that for weeks he'll madden :shock:

Anyway, I love to confuse you :P we have to live in the very near future with this obscure IPv6. Why I hate that? Because I have only 10 fingers and I'm familiar with this 10-counting system. IPv6 demand me having 16 fingers so that I can count: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A/a, B/b, C/c, D/d, E/e, F/f. See what I mean? A very spooky & horrible future awaits me. So let's be cool 8-)

You are just too funny!! Yes laughs are healthy, too bad there are not enough of them in the world, there are some people that have no idea of how to do that as their hearts are so black they want others to feel the same, even if it means hurting the other through the use of a computer..a easy way not to be seen...

Confuse me, yes you do, I feel like for longer than I realized. As for the IPv6 at least you can grasp it, this whole machine still boggles my mind but at least I try. Spooky and horrible futures can be avoided, esp. if you have realized some peoples hearts are so black they could care less about their fellow human and even less for ones of their own blood. Its your choice which way to go, To be my age I feel I am very cool :) and try to treat others the way Iwant to be treated, not the way some are paid to treat others... so I search for ways or for people to help protect me...if only they will..

@Kalina, my Southern drawled Lady ;)

I love to chat with you. Yup! Computer is the gun of the cyberworld. Blackheart, as you dub, just aims and pulls the trigger...eh, sorry, presses the enter-key. No sound, no blood but a lot of anger :twisted:

Our feebee never cares about small potatoes like you and me. If you want to protect yourself (ie. your privacy) you have to duck in this crazy cyberworld. If you must you reveal yourself as minimum as possible:

1) try to avoid using online banking...
2) email folder should NOT contain data that can compromise you
3) chat (eg. with me :oops: ) only when you're anonymous enough
4) try to avoid facebook or whatever online association if you can
5) don't send email that contains your true physical address or thing that can lead back to you.

The web is the Wild West of today. Have a good day, mi Southern drawled Lady ;)
