I recently moved cities. After setting up my router that I had used at my old location in my new apartment all devices show that I am in my old city. When I go down the street to Starbucks less than a mile away it shows my new city. When I go back to my apartment my devices go back showing my old city 40 miles away. I have an iphone, android and tablet and they all do the same thing when connected to the router. What is the issue and what can I do to fix it?
