I get emails from consumer magazine.  The links in them do not work, Firefox says "Connecting..." for a few minutes, then gives the new tab page.  On my Spark-connected phone if the wi-fi is on (and thus working through Vodafone) they sit indefinitely with the progress bar taking two steps, with wi-fi off (and so using Spark) they work fine.  I called consumer magazine some months ago, and they said it was a Vodafone issue.

The URLs begin, for example

FWIW (and I don't know what it may be worth) nslookup says
Non-authoritative answer:

and I can ping  Any ideas?

johnr: If you try another browser does the same issue happen?


Yes. I normally use firefox on *buntus, and my browser on my phone is firefox, but I get the same with chrome on my phone, and chrome on Windows 7.




What happens if you try to go to Do you get an Infusionsoft log in screen?




Regards, and thanks for your attention, John Little

The router is set to get the DNS server settings from the WAN interface, PPPoA, and the ones it reports are those on the Vodafone website anyway, and .68.



Here's the traceroute:


traceroute to (, 30 hops max, 60 byte packets

12 ( 166.117 ms 168.063 ms 169.703 ms



However, as the ping to works fine, I don't suppose there's anything wrong with the routing.
