The internet thinks I am from france!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

at my work, we have an external IP that is used in France. When my work place first got it, it was in an IP range that was agreed to not be used by any particular country, this changed before I started working here.

This is not a major issue, but it causes some websites to think I am from france, and therefore displays text in french automatically, having me to sometimes use google translate on the web page to actually be able to read it.

I was wondering if there is anything I can do on my computer to make "the world" think that atleast my computer is not in france, but in fact in Norway?

Thanks!

You can change the HTTP requested language: http://www.reliply.org/info/internet/http-accept-lang.html

..else, use a proxy... but doubtful since it is at work.
