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.

Have just had similar result on leaving GMail -  went to .nl rather then .co.uk

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.
