      hi everyone.i have a question which is not realy poker related.
      when i log on Poker Strategy in right corner of home page there is flag of Serbia.
      Reason of that may be,because i bough my lap top from Serbian provider.Also when i want to sign up for some poker room for example,in registration section he automaticly choose country Serbia.
      By the way i am from Montenegro.
      My question is can i change this somehow.
      I mean i want my IP adress to be Montenegro.

      The problem probably aren't in your laptop. It lies in your internet provider. You should ask them about this matter.

      Exactly so.
      Your ISP didn't update country identification information or it's main office is located in Serbia.

      It's not a second-hand laptop right? If it is you might want to check out program like Tor. It is used to bounce your IP around the world to cover your own IP. Who knows, it might be set up in your laptop. Although I really doubt that this is the problem in your case.
