New ASUS RT-AX 82U Router login page speedtest location inaccurate

On my brand new ASUS RT-AX 82U Router login page the speedtest location inaccurate.

Is there a location setting?

I just set this up and it's great, I auto-updated to the latest firmware. It's an improvement over my old Netgear AC unit.

Odd thing I notice is that speedtest seems to think that I am in Kansas.

I believe the speed test chooses candidate test servers based on some determination through the ISP. I don't think the user has any say in this other than you can select a server from the list to perform a speed test. They will typically report similar results, so it doesn't much matter.
