Your IP is?

So I was checking my IP and found this site showing my IP wrong. 

What is my IP address? Free IP lookup and check in the UK | IONOS by 1&1

Anyone else getting their IP wrong by this site?

Re: Your IP is?

Hi @legacy1 

Mine is also incorrect on that site.

I tested the link you posted  twice and the first time it showed an incorrect IP address although the ISP (VM) was correct, however it seems I have relocated 84 miles.

When I retested 5 minutes later it gave me a new IP address belonging to BT and a new location 340 miles away.

I entered the incorrect IP's details from the original link into https://whatismyipaddress.com/    which is the site I generally use as it allows allows me to update the location if it's incorrect, to check the info

Re: Your IP is?

Looks like they might be fixing it on one of the tries it shows my IP now guess someone setup routers doing NAT.
