I had some problems parsing your description:

There are some missing words in the description, so I'm not sure what 
you're asking for.  Please try again.  Maybe a picture would help. 
Also, I'm not sure what the IP address and the pinging is for...

But, it doesn't sound that far out of the norm - assuming I have the 
right idea about what you're talking about.

We don't currently support geographical clustering very well, so if I 
understand what you said, that might not be something you want to do 
right away.

So, please try again.
