Yahoo cannot change my location

I have been having this problem with yahoo and other websites showing me from a different location and on yahoo when I try to change it to my current location it keeps telling me unable to change location and when I tell it to detect my location it shows my location and when I try to set that it says unable to set location, what should I do, I have already tried resetting IE10, disconnecting and re-connecting my wireless adapter, and I can't think of anything else to do, any suggestions would be helpful, thank you in advance.
