Google Analytics filter is not working at all

If anybody can help me out with this, I'd be very happy.

I set GA to filter my IP, it didn't work. I checked my IP again, but it was still a same number.
I try to filter my ISP's domain, which is "shaw.ca" it didn't work.
Then I try to filter my City, then Country, both didn't work.
What am I doing wrong???

Here is what I did to exclude country for example.
I press Create filter, then custom filter, click on "Exclude" then choose "Visitor Country" from filter field, then type "Canada" on filter pattern, choose No for case sensitivity.

Sorry, I know a lot about Google (old and new versions), but never did mess with filtering my IP since it changes often!

Maybe someone else will come along! Sorry you couldn't do this!

I had this problem some time ago. I contacted shaw and asked them not to change my IP so often. They used to change it on a daily basis, drove me nuts. After that I had no problems. I think they've change it twice since in 2 years. Of course you`ll have to wait the 6 hours just to talk to someone there. LOL

where are you still seeing yourself? main reports or just the live beta? live beta doesn't work with the filters (says so at the bottom of the page)
yes, i see myself in live beta! so that was the problem... i will check overall too
here are the instructions on excluding yourself with an Etsy account:

I didn't realize this many people already answered to my question.
Thank you, all
Yes, I was looking at Real-Time, thinking filter is not working.
But on my standard report, number doesn't change, so it is working.
Since I'm using Shaw, I will keep that my IP might change in future.
Thank you.
