Could you point me to a tutorial or instructions in case I want to try it? Thanks

You can do it two ways...
In Windows, but only that particular machine will have a VPN connection.
For Windows 10 > https://nordvpn.com/tutorials/windows-10/

Or in the router, so that all devices connected to it will get a VPN connection.
For OpenWRT routers CLI method > https://nordvpn.com/tutorials/openwrt/openvpn/
For OpenWRT routers GUI method > https://nordvpn.com/tutorials/gl-inet/openvpn/

Since this is not a VPN thread, the rest of the detail you will have to re/search for yourself.

What's happening is that the modem/network is not providing the correct location information to Windows for some reason, I'm sure they are working on fixing it.
Bill is this the modem firmware or the WIFIX WE826 Rooter firmware? Is there a way I can "flash" my way out of it?

Thanks
