Well it says I'm located in Pennsylvania, but I'm really in California.
I was just wondering if anyone knew how it worked???

What says your located in Pennsylvania??
DO you mean a website like www.ipchicken.com or do you mean AO?
If it is something like a site that tells you your IP and where you are then its probably because your using a public proxy.

I think it's where your ISP is located. Like me i run Compuserve (owned by AOL)
AC98264C.ipt.aol.com I guess one of AOL servers is located Vienna, Virginia, United States. Just my opinion I can be wrong. Or this can be a bug.

I'm not really sure because I have no idea how it works, but I mean the AO tools and toys thing. I think this is my servers name ca-temecula-cuda2-c2b-208.snbrca.adelphia.net so I think that would be located over here I do know I'm on a lan and that my computer says i have a different ip than the AO tool.

I'm guessing this is just your routers ip.
The ip my router presents suggests i'm in the midwest, but in reality i'm in Dixie.

Oh I get it I think. So my internet comes from a company over in Pennsylvania then right?
