IP-based Location giving wrong city

Post by rob007 » Tue May 05, 2015 3:52 pm

The IP Address assigned by my ISP gives a location of a different city than where my weather station is located. So it does not appear in the search for my particular city even though it is the only weather station in this town. I have the Lat/Lon precise to the location, is there a way to disable the "IP-based Location" and use the coordinates instead?

Platform: TP-LINK TL-MR3020 (plus USB hub)
RAM: 29364 kB total, 3824 kB free (86% used)
SW Version: Meteobridge 2.5 (May 1 2015, build 6325), FW 1.4

IP-Based location is just for your convenience, but it is not
used for weather data uploads etc. What you specify via
Lat/Long does rule.
