Windows 7: My IP address shows me at two locations!

26 Feb 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64bit
My IP address shows me at two locations!

After I had solved my previous issue with Paypal, it began recurring again. When I got the same "403 - denied" message when trying to access the USPS tracking site, I began to wonder if my IP address wasn't causing the problems all along. I search "what is my IP" address, and it came up with the same IP number, but several sites showed my location differently. One shows my location as Hanoi, Vietnam, another shows my location as Phnom Penh. Phnom Penh is probably closer to correct, as I AM in Sihanoukville, about 125 miles southwest of Phnom Penh.
I can see why both USPS and Paypal might have problems with this. I can probably convince Paypal to let it through, but how can I get the USPS to do the same?

This type of thing is perfectly normal due to the way that the internet works- Not all location software is the same - some show me at my real location others show me at a generic location in Central UK, others show me elsewhere

In Vista, when you clicked the down arrow at the address bar, you would get a list of all the recent files and folders you visited, even urls from IE. In fact, it worked much the same as IE's adress bar, showing recent urls. This feature seems to have gone away in windows 7. At least on my...
