LTE Network Extender has wrong Time Zone
AmishCellPhone

My LTE Network Extender tells all connected devices that they are in EDT when we are really in CDT.  I've gone into Web Admin and set both settings to CDT, then saved those, then rebooted the LTE Network Extender. All connected devices still show EDT--which is the incorrect timezone.

This related thread has a post suggesting the extender may be getting its time zone from the router it is connected to.  What time zone is configured in your router?

I am having the same issue.  Been on with support numerous times with no resolution.  I am in central time, admin console has central time, device randomly serves up New York Eastern Time

I have 2 of these devices and no matter what I set in the settings it always serves up Central Time when it should be Eastern. This has been an ongoing issue for probably 2 years.

I have had the Verizon LTE Network Extender since June 2023.  I have researched and followed exact steps to make sure everything is set and saved to CT time zone.  However, all of our phones, and anyone else that visits, that come into range of the extender change to New York Eastern Time Zone.  It's frustrating to have to remind everyone to turn off "Set Automatically" on their phones.  Family and friends have forgotten and left an hour too early on several occasions.  Is there an answer to this problematic issue?

Thank you for reaching out with your concern about the time zone. Please see page 23 here: https://ss7.vzw.com/is/content/VerizonWireless/Catalog%20Assets/Accessories/Verizon/verizon-lte-netw... for how to set the time zone through your admin page. If the problem continues you will need to contact your internet service provider to have them calibrate the settings being sent through the date from them.

This cannot be true, nothing else has this issue until the Verizon LTE extender is connected. I have seen replies of your employees on this forum telling people they have to fix something in the backend. The fact that you are providing inconsistent information about something critical like time zone information leads me to believe we will never actually get this fixed. I’ve replied to customer service private messages and every time you get a new person who has no clue what you are talking about.

I will explain to anyone reading what is happening. The Verizon LTE Extender tells any device that connects to it that it’s in a time zone that’s incorrect. No amount of changes or admin switches in the settings will correct this issue.

Page 23 clearly states that updating the time zone in the Admin console only affects its logs and not the devices connected to the extender.

"The extender features built-in time zone and daylight savings settings to configure for your device. Time zone
settings only affect timestamps and logs where featured throughout the Web Admin UI."
