    When i do an ip address search it shows i am in the USA when i am in the UK, this causes problems as everything comes up in $ not £ etc
    I have googled this but cannot solve the problem, i have checked the time and zone and all seem ok. This happens when i use either wifi or ethernet.
    this has only just started in the last few days so any ideas please let me know.

    Many thanks

    It could be your internet provider is doing something funky. Are you with bt? They have been doing a lot of testing recently that's caused havoc for customers trying to stream sky go etc due to regional issues

    Have you setup a proxy server or VPN on your Mac?

    It's going to be your Mac not Ido then. Try restoring basic network settings

    Go into /Library/Preferences/System Configuration/ and delete:

    com.apple.airport.preferences.plist
    com.apple.network.identification.plist
    com.apple.smb.server.plist
    NetworkInterfaces.plist
    preferences.plist
