I turned my Skinny Modem off this evening. Upon turning it on doing a speedtest It thinks I am in CHCH where's I am in Auckland....never had this before.

Ping is right up there at 158 with download speed 12.57 Mbps Upload 6.47 Mbps

Normally I always get around 18 - 20 ping with download of a good 100 - 108 upload 30 ish

Now I have turned it off 3 times for around 5 mins each so no change.

Device B315s-607

Tested ethernet, wireless

Any ideas?

The modem does not think you are in Chch the speedtest.net server thinks you are located in Chch

 

Just ignore it zero impact

Defo not right. Chat as in FB chat? I was going to call them but it's closed.

At this hour yes they are closed.
I'd go to skinny site, ask Blake (sp?) for human please.
He will offer you a contact form as they are closed.

Right folk will look into it first thing tomorrow.

Likely there is far better ways to get into it and the skinny folk will wave a stick at me tomorrow... But it works :)

There are a few options this could be. If its anything outage related it will have been noted already though.
