IP address location change

This past Wednesday (the day the Big Mike site went down) my IP address location change to Lena Illinois (over 1,000 miles away). So when I go to different websites Illinois stuff is brought up. First time this has happen. Could someone be spoofing my IP address or using a proxy without me knowing. Thanks for any advice

Where are you seeing Illinois stuff?

If it is on google, you can change your location on the google search settings. I do this to test and see adword ads in other locations.

weather.com, bizbuysell, enters Illinois as the state and others. So I did ip location search at iplocation.net. I call my internet provider and they said no changes on their end. First time I have ever seen this. I know there are so computer guys on here with a lot knowledge so I thought I would ask.

Your IP does show Illinois while previously it showed Texas.

It is the same ISP, the same owner of the IP block. So probably they just re-allocated some IP's and haven't properly updated the geography records. It is quite unlikely you will be able to talk to anyone on the phone that has a clue about this, it would be handled by the network administrators of the ISP.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
