VM thinks I'm in Scotland!

Aftek up a power failure, when the router booted back up, the WAN IP changed completely and now Speedtest thinks I'm in Scotland when in fact I am in Lincoln and my speeds are awful since then.

I've tried a power cycle but still the same. Are there problems in the Nottingham/Lincoln area to cause this?

Re: VM thinks I'm in Scotland!

So has someone played on my laptop and changed my location then?

Just tried Speedtest on my iPhone and it picks Glasgow as the best server! Always been Nottingham.

Basically, Google recognises your new IP address was last used in Scotland, Google will catch up with your location eventually :-)

Re: VM thinks I'm in Scotland!

So why did my WAN IP change? Hasn't changed for months! - until now.
