Ever since updating my router, I have not been able to determine my location.  When I connect the device to a cellular WIFI hotspot the location can be determined. 


My question is this: what does Apple use to determine your location when using WIFI?  I am under the assumption that the locations are determined via MAC address of the router that you are specifically connected to.  If this is so, the data base holding the addresses would need to be managed and updated at regular intervals to maintain accuracy.  When and how does Apple do this?  I have not been able to determine my location for at least a year now.


Thank you.
