Same networking scheme for me too, dynamic that is.
Every time the DHCP lease expires or i reboot the router i get a new ip
address but every time the link i provided states accurately that my ip
address is from Thessaloníki and not Europe/Athens which is were my ISP
Not to mention that in facebook, no matter the way i'am joining, via
smartphone, tablet, laptop it always pinpoints my exact location.
But yes, i can understand your skepticism.
An ip address can move anywhere while remaining connected to the same
ISP, just like a networking device in the house, remains connected to
the same router while changing rooms or even floors, or even buildings.
But then how do you explain the fact that
pinpointed Thessaloníki and not Athens and for 2 friends of mine that
use the same ISP as me but live in different cities also accurately
identified their locations too?
What is now proved was at first only imagined!
