Wrong Ip Address reported if ISP using proxy 8 Years, 3 Months ago  
If one's ISP is using a transparent proxy the the IP address served up is the IP address of the proxy. This can be rectified by using the following blog http://www.thepcspy.com/read/getting_the_real_ip_of_your_users.
Unfortunately there is also a possibility of multiple IPs being served up here if more than one proxy is passed through and there seems to be a debate as to whether the first or the last IP is the one you should use. see the following links for more info.

Hope this is useful for you

Thank you, I'll have a look at it.
I should check for the X-Forwarded-For header.
