Could there be a setting in my router that give the wrong my wrong location
Several times in the past either on my iphones or iPads whenever I was making a change or something else I would get a notice that "someone in texas" is accessing your account. I forget the exact city name but it's always the same. The only reason I never got concerned is becasue it only happens when I am accessing my account.
I've noticed that also when I go to a website that tracks your location like Best Buy or Costco are the 2 I remember the default store is always in texas ( I'm not in texas) So the other day I was thinking I wonder if some setting in my route has my location as texas?
Norally getting those messages would concern me but since it only happens when I am accessing my account on iPhone or my apple ID and then when the websites like Best Buy or Costco and others have my default store in texas. I know I am not being hacked or have been hacked but can't figure out why my connection appears to be from Texas. That is what made me think it could be my router??
Any help is appreciated and I hope everyone is staying safe from the Covid-19 virus.

No. Your router has no idea where you or it or anything else is.
Various people/corporations may believe that they know where your
_router_ is, based on where your ISP is, or where some mobile device
last reported where it detected a wireless-network signal from your
router as it drove by. In some cases, such data may be misleading.
For a good (but possibly depressing) time, try a Web search for a
term like, say, "location services".
