Default Get me out of Texas!

The IP information listed for my IP says I'm in Texas. I'm actually in Illinois. How are you getting this geolocation info?

IP Addresses are frequently moved to different geographic locations depending on the needs of the ISP that holds the IP's. After a while, the goelocation will correct itself.

It is odd though that IP2location shows it in Texas and IP AddressLabs shows it in Arkansas when the Reverse DNS says Cicero Illinois.

A direct ARIN lookup shows it in Texas. That's probably the home for AT&T or that is where the IP's were originally assigned.
