The wifi box does not give the correct location on the Ethernet cable which also mean mesh wont work
So I returned the box and the second box has the same problem. I have been to the store. I have been to the help line in India. Nobody seems to know they have a problem.

Then if I ask the time again I get the time in that city.I called the service number and really didn’t get anywhere. I had difficult time explaining the difference between wifi and Ethernet cables.
