Hi I found out that my geolocation kept ending up in the middle off Christchurch where other people on other isps except telecom shows the geolocation of there house. I was wondering if there was any way of fixing this sence i would like to use my wifi for quick geolocation for my cell phone for when i leave home. 

any info would be cool
Thanks

What software are you using?

Do you have WiFi on?

Are connected to your home access point when you see this?

Have you ever got a good GPS fix while connected to your home access point?

Yea i have Wifi on but I was just using http://www.whatismyip.com/tools/ip-address-lookup.asp and some other sites with my ip address. If i enable wifi on my phone it does go any quicker but when i had data connection etc on my phone it loaded up fast sence its a-gps as well. I might not respond for a couple of days after this sence im going straight from work to a 3 day lan party lol so ill be back laterz :P

(EDIT: if im at my friends place with wifi it picks up where i am very quick)

Sorry, but your response makes no sense at all... Please re-read my questions and answer each one separately. Once I have these answers then I can tell you more how it works, why you are seeing this and how to fix it.
