This isn't like listening to the radio, the Ranger will connect to whatever internet connection the park provides. Sorry, you couldn't watch Canadian TV, but that's not the Ranger's fault.

Except I was using Cellular and yes it was pulling a US Cellular signal due to my proximity to the border... Hence the reason Netflix told me the movie I downloaded in Canada was not available in the Country I was in, because the system thought I was in the United States...So I am afraid you are incorrect!

That's still not the Ranger's "fault". You were in the Thousand Islands region where you are exposed to cellular signals from both sides of the border. It appears that the Ranger connected to a US carrier rather than a Canadian one. I've had my phone do the same sort of thing.

The US carrier would have provided a US-based IP address which is what caused Netflix to act the way it did. I'm not sure what you would have expected the device to do. You could have restricted your cellular account to "no roaming--Canadian carriers only" but that's not something the Ranger can control.

I never said anything about “fault” just that it was a challenge that I experienced in using it. Ease up Doc!
