Anyone geting Google dutch pages?

I am assuming Google use IP detection to work out what page to serve you.  When I visit www.google.com ; I get all my results in dutch!!
Is something going on at Plusnet that may make Google think I speak double dutch?

You haven't inadvertently changed the default language in Google settings?
There are some odd languages in there such as Klingon and Elmer Fudd.

Re: Anyone geting Google dutch pages?

I had this issue a while back, I used to go to google.it! Also notice if I try to go directly to linuxmint.com it takes me to .de! But if I go via google it takes me to the .com site. Some very strange things happening!
I might go back to using the pn DNS servers and see what I get.

Just checked and no problem with the .com or .co.uk sites.
