I don't know what tool you are using to do that, but it's buggy and confused.

GeoIP.dat.gz is the second item in DOWNLOAD in the .info file; the
second MD5SUM is 810c597f30be3706909ef3b7949bcf86; and
810c597f30be3706909ef3b7949bcf86 is indeed the md5sum of GeoIP.dat.gz
when I download it manually.

However, 7bb92ae5ebb8b61c3aeac247657c6c8f is the *third* MD5SUM in the
.info file, so that's a bug in whatever you are using.

Additionally, 99c46748c54cc18d98379f9f969f62c9 *was* the *third*
MD5SUM in the previous revision of the .info file, so whatever tool
you are using is failing to realise that its cached version of
GeoIP.dat.gz is obsolete and should be redownloaded.
