Can anyone help? Router thinks it still lives at my old house

I've spoken to a guy at plusnet who said there's no setting to be changed on the router and I can't find anything. I moved house in July and took my router and my plusnet account with me. Ever since whenever I look on maps or anything at home it thinks I'm at my old address 40 miles away. It's getting very irritating.

Does anyone know how to change it?

TIA

If you have a Google account it could be your location settings need updating - can't think of anything else at the moment.

Are you meaning the likes of google searches and maps? If so then this might be of help.

I've changed the SSID of the router to ******_nomaps as suggested here https://productforums.google.com/forum/m/#!topic/maps/NfH94fJ6KUU
And it seems to have worked so far.
