Does a IP address contain information information about your geographic region?

Q: Does a IP address contain information information about your geographic region?


A site identifies its user through IP address and cookies. My question is about IP address. Does a IP address contain information information about your geographic region? What do those digits in IP address mean? Some websites could tell where the user is located, how? Would you please help me with it. Thanks a lot.

Preferred Solution: Does a IP address contain information information about your geographic region?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Does a IP address contain information information about your geographic region?

I think I have the answer. So, there is no need to reply and thanks for reading it.

Does someone know what these phrases mean?

NetType is "Direct Allocation"



<img src="http://forums.techguy.org/attachment.php?s=&postid=545020">

A:IP Address Information

a fair bit of techno babble but basically they mean exactly what they seem to mean

- direct allocation: receive a block of IP addresses from ARIN and have to use them according to ARIN policies (ie not hoard them etc)

- non-portable: the IP addresses/address blocks stay with the current 'owner' who 'leases' them to it's customers - change ISPs and you change your IP address, can't take it with you

ARIN (American Registyr of Internet Numbers) at http://www.arin.net/index.html has lots more if interested

Hi everyone. This is probably absolute paranoia but I thought I would ask anyway. If someone has your exact IP address, is there any way they can "hack" your computer with the information??. I recently was visiting an Internet forum where an individual was claiming he could send any number of viruses to you just by knowing your IP address. (I know it was some keyboard commando talking big). I do have a couple of questions if anyone wouldn't mind answering.

1. What does your computer send along with your IP address?? I believe it also sends your operating system and what browser your using, but I'm not sure.

2. Can anyone recommend a good program for monitoring what ports are open on your computer that works with vista?

3. Is there a place where you can look up IP addresses on the internet??

Thanks for any help. Sorry if I put this in the wrong forum

A static IP address is a number assigned to a computer by an Internet service provider (ISP) and intended to be its permanent address on the Internet. Thus it will not change.However, there are not enough IP numbers for each computer so many ISPs limit the number of static IP addresses they assign and utilize a pool of IP addresses instead. The ISP will temporarily assign a dynamic IP address automatically to a requesting Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) computer from this pool of addresses and it will change each time you connect to the Internet. When you disconnect from the Internet, the temporary dynamic IP address is returned to the IP address pool ... Read more

I hope someone can help here. I have someone that is harrassing me. I believe I have the IP address narrowed down. Is there anyplace that I can go on the Internet to see exactly who this IP address belongs to? I know I can see what provider it comes from, but I'd like to see who the exact customer of that service is.

In my excel file, I have a vendor name in column A and the address information (street, city/state/zip) in column B. I need to move city/state/zip to column c. The issue is that some vendors have 2 lines of information, some have 3 (apartment number, for example) and some have no address at all. Each record is separated by a blank row though.

How can I get the address information to go across to columns C and D (if necessary)?

A:Excel column to rows - address information

In a perfect world there should only ever be one piece of data in a column. For example; Column A = Vendor Name, Column B = Street Address, Column C = Street Address 2 (Apt. # , Suite # etc), Column D = City, Column E = State, Column F = Zip. There shouldn't be any blank columns in between.

That said, there's a function in Excel in the Data menu or ribbon (depending on if you're using 2003 or 2007) called Text To Columns which lets you to break out data from one cell to many cells. So, if you have address/city/state/zip in one cell - you can tell it to put the address in one cell, the city in the next cell, the state in the next cell and the zip in the next cell.

However - you have to tell Excel how to separate the data in your cell. It can be by a "delimiter" or by counting character spacing. Delimiter means... You can tell it to look for a comma, or a space, or a dash or something that's placed between each piece of data and wherever it sees that delimiter it will put the next piece of information into the following cell. By spacing you're telling it to count a certain number of characters to the right then split the data into the next cell. This probably won't work because address information is all across the board with regard to character counts.

Address information is difficult with delimiters as well because more often than not the only thing you'll have between each piece of data is a space. That works for the city sta... Read more

can region 7 (not selected) DVD player play region (1+2+3+4+5+6) DVD without region changed ?
in other words , does a ALL region DVD appear the same as region free DVDs to DVD players?
i used an old edition of DVD shrink to make some DVD movies before. but later i changed to AnyDVD with DVDclone. AnyDVD told me that the DVDs that were made with DVDshrink has region code locked to 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 instead of being region free. whilst those made with DVD clone, are recognized as region free.
i would like to ask if the DVD region of a DVD player has to be changed to one of the following: 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 when i put a DVD made with DVD shrink into it? given that the DVD player is a new one, not yet played any DVD, which should has a region code of 7 ( not selected). what will happen if i really put one of those DVD made with DVD shrink (with six regions allowed.) into my DVD player? would it just automatically change itself into 1? (because 1 is the smallest but i do not live in US or Canada!) i am so afraid that i do not dare putting the DVD to try it on my own in case it will waste the number of times i can change the region.

I have a home PC and a work laptop, the latter I take home to work from home. I would like to be able to use my home screen, keyboard and mouse with the laptop, and I know that a KVM should allow me to do this. However, I would like to make it simple, and deal with as few connections to the laptop as I can.

Is there a KVM on the market that will allow me to run keyboard, mouse AND SCREEN off a USB connection to the laptop, or will I need both USB and Video connection to the laptop every time I want to connect?

I suspect that I will not be able to run video off a USB connection, but is is worth asking.

If it is possible, any suggestions as to kit I may buy would be useful.

A:USB KVM Information

My suggestion would be the use of a remote mouse and keyboard and the use of a dongle which will take one USB port and a direct connection if you have one from video to screen.

I am a desktop technician for George Mason University and I have run into a large variety of virus, my absolute favorite being the vundo variations(jk). I was wondering if there are any resources or classes that the experts have used or taken to be more knowledgeable on removal of malicious code(malware/spyware/viruses). While this site and its collection of spyware/malware/virus removals is wonderful, it doesnt even touch the surface nor cover the many variations of each of them. Thank you so much and I really love the site.


BC does have a HJT training class, but it is currently full and new students are not now being accepted. To cover all the variations of malware current would be a virtual impossibility, especially given the many different computer configurations; hence, our staff of trained volunteers offers individual help in ridding a computer of malware based on information contained in the log produced by the HijackThis! application.

My brother recently gave my kids his old computer (to keep them off of mine).
Problem is he didn't have any of the manuals for the computer. The harddrive is in great shape with 90% free space. The problem is the moniter, everything on the screen has a green hue to it. I can't figure out the adjustments for it either. The moniter is a EMC 768M, does anyone know of a sight I might be able to find out some information on this moniter. Or better yet if you already know how to make the adjustments that will work too.

A:Looking for information

Sounds like the red color gun is gone. If someone was messing around with the controls, then just take it to a shop and have them readjust the color guns. If no one was playing around with them, then the red gun is most likely no good, and in that case the monitor would need to be replaced. You couldn't fix this yourself. You need special tools to do it and the high voltage inside the case could kill you, even if it's been sitting unplugged for a while. If it were me, I'd just get a new monitor. At least that way you'd have a warranty. You could also get a good refurb monitor cheap which also come with warranties

Dear All,

I don't have any idea about importance of RAM and how it works. Can any body explain me with exaples? I read topic in "How stuff works" but could not understand well. I am sorry for my lack of undersatnding.

A:Information about RAM

Simple way: You know that all your info and programs and whatnot is saved as data on your hard drive. When doing stuff, your computer has to read that data and write some new data sometimes. RAM is a temporary place to hold that data while processing it. The reason why RAM is important is that reading and writing to the RAM is many times faster than it would be from and to your hard drive.

Well I have since then cleaned out history and garbage out of my computer.I did not save the pic in a folder or anything.But it is in my "Display Properties" in background settings.Is there any way at all I can find the URL or http:// address how I can get back to this web page???????When I right click on the desk top and click the properties tab,...all it does is take me to the display properties box,...and there it is along with the other different types of background pictures I can choose from,....but I can't get any information at all about this saved BACKGROUND PICTURE.I can't find it anywhere in the PC ecept in the display properties.Any suggestions how I can locate information on my desktop background picture?I would go back to a system restore but it won't let me restore ANY DATE AVAILABLE in the restore place.And system restore is turned on.ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.Any way,...back to the original question,is there any way I can find any information about the desktop background??

well... my dad had a guy add memory and hard dive space to our Vaio computer. He tried to hook it back up to the flat-screen vaio monitor and a little information box came up that said "Out of scan range: 35.5KHz/86Hz". Now we have to use our really old bulky '96 Gateway 2000 monitor that takes up most of the desk. Is there something I can do to get the vaio CPU to work with the vaio monitor?

Hi everybody! I'm not english so sorry for my language mistakes.
I wanted to understand how does lifi works.
They say it will be faster than wifi so it will replace wifi.
However this is my question: i live in a very small town outside the city and no thelephone Company is able to give me an internet connection, so i asked to a company that put an antenna over my roof and gives me wireless adsl (200kb/sec...).
So now i'm wondering: if this lifi tecnology will go ahead, will i be able to get a fast internet or doesn't change anything dor me?
I hope i explained my problem. Thanks for reading

Im new to the site and need some help on removing a virus and getting my network back together.
I dont know what type of virus I got  or if it's still present on my computer, so I hope this site has a really good protection plan. Sorry !
From what I can see, my AV failed to keep the darn thing from spreading throught my system even my DC is out.
Ok, I ran the DDS and have attached the files, Sense I first noticed or was informed of the infection back in November of 2013 I have been running MS network monitor and have noticed request for microsoft.com at address I dont think thats right, checking whois tells me otherwise.
Im presuming a redirector.
Another thing I noticed was looking through win\sys32\drivers I find some of my DLL have creation dates listed as today and the modification dates listed around the install date( Im presuming) i.e Creation date = 3/15/2013 and mofdification date = 10/15/2009.
I ran MS system esentials autoruns and process explorer. I tried to remove some of the unknowen users but after restarting they were back.
Anyway the computer im currently working on is a Sony Vaio with win 7 ultra. as far as an Antivirus its symantec endpoint protection.
If anyone can help Let me know what else I can do

Hopefully this is posted I the right section. I am trying to learn how to set up a vpn, between my hp g60 635dx notebook, and my Verizon Motorola droid turbo. My internet brighthouse . I've made a couple of attempts using Verizon support, and brighthouse support. Both recommended the other. A hopeless circle.I also tried just using google search. I got further there than other tech support attempts. This isn't really a vital need but would really like to know how to do this. Thanks for any help.
