View Full Version : Xtra Connectivity check.

31-03-2010, 08:22 PM
I'm experiencing some download issues like small 5mg downloads halting for up to 20 to 30 seconds then starting again. I have a Thompson wireless router on the xtra all you can eat plan and when I recently did a 'Connectivity Check' the 'Connectivity to DNS Server 1' and ...2 came up with a big red cross. Could I possibly have a configuration issue or is this normal. Can anyone suggest other possible ways of improving my connectivity. (And yes I know...change plans...).

you could try changing the wireless channel to something else( not leave it on auto)

you may have to try each channel until you have no problem downloading or connecting to the net

My Thomson router always says that its not connected to either DNS, nor the internet, but here I am...

Won't be the channel then if you are via cable.
