Is Skinny having issues - or is it my modem.  I suspect the later.




I keep getting presented with a security certificate warning (see here ) and no websites etc will load as everything redirects to




Trying to reach google leads me to:




The network light is cyan, we have full bars for connection but it is saying we're not connected.  We have lots of data left.




Friday night is very sad tonight :(

Hi, I'm in Pukekohe.  I checked the Spark network and that all appears to be OK.

I have had this, factory reset the device and it should recover. ( pin in the hole )


I had to do this about two weeks in, I was not happy as I had lots of custom settings.







I know enough to be dangerous

Yes ... thanks so much!  Was a little weary of doing that last night as I wasn't sure of the consequences, but done just now and we're up and running.
