Example I know using the:
gives me the IP address. Is there a way to drill down further.
Example down to the country and city?
I have seen it done on a few order forms when placing orders I want to know how I can drill down on this as well.

Think there's something on w3 schools, see this example:
While doing some Google Map research also found this cool tool.
No good to you but interesting all the same :O)

One solution is to use JS:
In this example I wanted just the url and not the actual asp file name

Are you plan to build a system link this ?
You first need a database contain a mapping between IP and location. You can find this kind of database from some warez homepage

Well, there's some related info on this using PHP here--
Using the same data and method, you could convert to ASP and go from there. (Or just switch to PHP and use the script supplied there if you'd prefer.)
Note: it's a fairly long discussion... starts being helpful mid-page-2.)

I think using something like this one (http://www.ip2country.net/ip2country/ip_country.html) will solve your problem completely.

I'm guessing that's similar to the solution used in the thread I linked to-- http://www.maxmind.com/app/geoip_country
Probably worth looking into. However... the link isn't loading for me.
EDIT: Now it loads, but looks like it costs $50. The one linked to above also is $50, I believe, but there is a free 'limited' version to use, which seems like it would probably do just fine.
The industry standard is MaxMind GeoIP (http://www.maxmind.com/app/php).
