Ok how that works is where your internet provider is based out of . The servers may be in California even though you are in Germany.

IP-based location services are notoriously imprecise. The movie scenes using them are laughable. It has nothing to do with your computer.

Which service did you check?

the Programm

What programme is that?

Are you running XP/Win2000? If, go Start-Run, enter CMD into the box, and when you see a black command prompt screen, type PATHPING WWW.AIRLINERS.NET and press Enter.
You'll get a list of IPs and addresses. One of the first lines will be your actual IP.

Enter your IP into https://www.iwebtool.com/reverse_ip and see it verifies the same. The proceed with your geographic location utilities.

Well maybe it's right but , I've to change something as I wanted to enter into the History Channel on Demand and it says :


You have reached the German Video on Demand website for The History Channel and The Biography Channel. Our video content is restricted and access is only allowed for audiences in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We have detected that your IP Address (72.14.193.68) is outside of these permitted countries and have blocked you from accessing the websites. You can however still visit our main channel websites at www.thehistorychannel.de and www.thebiographychannel.de

Use www.anonymouse.org . It's a German-based IP proxy and you might be able to spoof your way in from there.

From my own t-Com DSL connection I have no problem accessing videos on that site.

But 72.14.193.68 doesn't appear to be a german IP address... it seems to belong to the swiss subsidiary of Google. No wonder that the site won't recognize you as german!

Check out http://www.ip-adress.com/ to get information about your current IP address.

You must have configured your system to use an external proxy or you are using a different provider directly, but apparently it's not t-Com as you think.

No! Unless your computer has been hijacked or otherwise infected (which would be premature to diagnose yet) you should not do anything that harsh.

91.20.72.71 appears to be a valid t-Com address after all. Which browser are you using? Have you tried a different one?

Does http://www.ip-adress.com/ say anything under "My proxy"? Maybe something installed itself (after downloading a software of some sort) which pipes all your requests through a proxy for some reason... or you have a proxy configured in your router (but it has to be a pretty advanced router to allow this).

No. 191.168.x.x is in private, non-routable IP space. 192.168.2.101 was probably is computer, 192.168.2.1 was probably his DSL modem's internal IP address.

lol....

If its directly connected to the internet, a simple reboot probably would have gotten you a new IP. If you have a router, usually a router reboot will do the same.

Assuming you don't have a static IP (most people don't, since IP addresses are getting sparse these days).

Nothing on your computer controls the IP address you're given, unless you've set up a very good proxy on it. And there are quite a few tools to find out if you have a proxy....
