105 with Instant giving wrong aGPS location

 

  Please move to a better location if I chose wrong.

 

  I'm new to Aruba and am impressed so far.  Recently I installed 2 AP-105s at a small business and have utilized the Instant setup.  Very easy and great performance.

 

  The somewhat perplexing issue is most easily seen with Weather Apps.  All iDevices, Android and Windows boxes that are on the WiFi pick up their location at "Chicago"  I'm in Minneapolis.  The only setting that I've set with respect to time is the "Timezone (-6 Central)" under System.

 

  Is there a setting that I've missed that makes my APs think I'm in Chicago?

 

Thanks

That is *USUALLY* done based on your IP address. Go to whatismyip.com and it should tell you how it is detecting it.

  Never have used that site, looks like a big ad.  It doesn't report anything "My IP Info" is blank.

 

  We are using Comcast Business, it reports a IPv6 address.

 

  With wired clients, I use the aGPS locator it finds me fairly close.  At least the correct city anyway.

OK, then go to Google and search "what is my IP" and then do a geo search on that IP address.
