View Full Version : odd problem with Soonet only

11-28-2010, 07:04 AM
this one has me stumped.

At my office computer I have no problem with Soonet.

At home, I have a laptop and a desktop. Both computers log on to Soonet really really slowly. it takes a minute or two to load up any page from Soonet.

I have no trouble at all with any other websites.

I have cleared out my cookies and cache, eith no improvement.

Could it be my router that doesn't like Soonet for some reason?

try somebody else's laptop on your connection

OK. I have another laptop that I booted up, same problem. And here's the kicker that makes me think it is either my router or DSL modem.

I ahve an Iphone. When my WiFi settings are on, it has the same problem. 1-2 minutes to browse to Soonet. But only Soonet. When I turn the WiFI off, it hopes onto the 3G netowrk, and Soonet is there almost immediatley/

So I know nothing about routers or modems.. how do I fix this? There are people breathlessly waiting for my wisdom on Soonet, and I do not want them to suffer from lack of my brilliant insights ;) ;)

unplug the cable that goes into your router and plug it into a laptop

Sure.. bypass the router, but how does this solve my problem? It's a WiFi router. I don't want to lose the convenience of being wireless in the house.

The problem has solved itself. I have no idea what it was.

From the sounds of it, it would either be locally on your side (ie router, computers) or on your isp's side. It could have been a dns or route issue between your isp and us.

Yeah, had to be. But it went away by itself, so I willl not pursue it.
