I am using a TP-Link Archer VR900 modem router. My UK IP address keeps getting redirected to a USA Cloudfare IP address. Crazy thing is that if I use one of the normal IP checking services it shows I am in the UK. When I use F-Secure it shows I am in the US, see below. It is impossible to use and of the BBC iPlayer services. I have carried out a factory reset on my router but the problem still persists. I carried out a system restore on my Windows 7 laptop just to make sure that it wasn't infected (I had full Norton protection). This caused even more problems so will raise a post in Window 7 forum. Any advice on how to resolve this would be welcome
