IP directs to incorrect physical location

The problem still exists even after geolocation updated by DB-IP. I have Comcast internet service. The First 3 months of service no problem at all, connected with the correct physical location. Then something changed, IP directed my location to Chicago, Ill. I contacted IP servicer DB-IP they updated incorrect location but the issue still exists. Local news on a streamer comes out of Chicago instead of Detroit. When logging into an account that uses location it shows Chicago. 


Comcast is ZERO help, any ideas???


Re: IP directs to incorrect physical location

Try contacting these other services. Good luck !

Wait for the geolocation provider to approve your request. If your request is approved, the amount of time it takes to see the correction varies by provider. The average is a month or more.
