What do these websites say about your location?

http://whatismyipaddress.com/ Under the map, look for Location Not Accurate?

Question owner

When I check the website you suggested http://whatismyipaddress.com/ it shows my location as Brosseley, MO along with 2 other locations by other location services - on in Virginia some 300 Km from my true location, and another in MD about the same distance away. Problem is there is not an obvious way that I can find to change my location to be the true location. Anyone know how to do that. I am about ready to take my system to my local computer Geek to get some help.
