Wrong country location for ip address

I’m having a problems with piwik 0.5.4

I did a test install to see what it was like, tried accessing a webpage from different computers and different browsers.

I found that there was a problem, I live in Australia and my computer stats were logged as China and Great Britain (views from other computers were logged ok as Australia). When I used Firefox 3.5 it got logged as Great Britain, Opera 9.5 was logged as China.

If I do a geoip my ip addresses, it comes up in Australia. Does anyone know whats going on?

I’m using Virgin Mobila broadband, its one of the 3G usb sticks.



With 0.5.5, there’ll be another plugin available for ip-to-country.

Awesome, thanks for that. I’ll install GeoIP now.

Good news: GeoIP is now integrated in Piwik, enabling Accurate Visitors Geolocation in your Analytics reports. To enable GeoIP go to the Settings > Geolocation admin page, and follow the short instructions.

You can also get an even more accurate Country & City Database from here to enjoy top accuracy in detecting your visitors locations.
