I have the wireless working fine - except it thinks it is at my old UK address - when I go to google maps on my phone it takes me back to the last UK address where I used this router - some years ago. I have moved since within the UK and now within Australia but the wirelss hasn't. What do I need to do to make the wireless know it is in a new place???
Thanks in advance.

The router seems to be working fine for internet access. So I'm not sure there is anything wrong with the router - except a setting that needs updating (but I can't figure out which).
The phone knows where it is when using the cell network to find it's locaiton (3G) but when it connects only via the wireless then it identifies itself at the old UK address.
so - 3G phone = OK; wireless = not OK.

There is the modem; the wireless (wrt54gs); and the phone. The phone picks up the wi-fi signal from the wireless. The only bit of equipment that has been anywhere near the address the phone now thinks it is at is the wireless. However, the phone in google maps; ovi/nokia maps as well as foursquare app all think that the phone is in the UK - when the phone has never been there. The only bit of equipment that has been in the UK is the wireless - and it is showing the exact address point that the wireless used to live at. Therefore, there must be something within the wet54gs that makes it think it is located in the UK. There is no way the phone could think it is somewhere it has never ever been unless the wireless is telling it so.

so from what you're saying - the issue is that the wireless has the wrong MAC address??? i have no idea what this means - but how do i change the MAC address on the wireless to it's new location???
can i find the MAC address within the modem settings???
