Hi
Anyone having problems applying jobs on seek.co.nz using woosh broadband? I have woosh and when I tried to apply jobs on seek website, on the stage where I upload my CV and cover letter its getting time out. Im experiencing this problem over a month now. I have tried 2 different PCc - same result. Spoked  to woosh customer service (holding for 25 mins) they said thery havent heard from any other customers......
I would appreciate if you can check with your connection and let me know.

Thanks

Are you using Woosh's wireless network, ADSL, or dial-up?

And how big is the file you are trying to send?

Wow, I had EXACTLY the same problem about 2-3 weks ago!  I was applying for a position and it timed out uploading my CV about 5 times, so I gave up an used another PC with no issues.  I never bothered to contact the helpdesk but will do now.

Where abouts where you when you tried this?  I was in Henderson in Auckland.

Are you sure it's your ISP and not your browser?  I have terrible trouble with Seek in Firefox, but it works fine in IE (shudder)

Actually I haven't had any problems at all using Seek with Firefox.  I know around 12 months ago Seek worked very poorly with Firefox - constant crashes and freezes.  However, now there are no problems whatsoever.

I use woosh wireless broadband with a gateway for woosh phone and I'm from Auckland Lynnfield. I have tried on my laptop and my PC but never worked. My mate from Pakuranga ( woosh wireless customer) also tried on his PC never worked. But over this week I have sent few application through seek, it seems to be working now. But Im 100% sure it didnt work before.

Uploading anything through Woosh is very painful, mainly due to the times the cellsite hits peak load, if you are using an Innomedia gateway for the phone service, reset it. There used to be some issue with connectivity between the PC and the network which was known to be when the SIP gateway didn't provision correctly. Power cycling the gateway does solve it but will more than likely do it again.

The older gateway units (ones that stand upright) used to have some serious problems with the connector between the modem and the gateway breaking in the gateway, the introduction of the SOC2 modems (red power light) also had some issues reconnecting on demand from the gateway.

The newer flat-style gateways are a lot more robust, but were prone to not reconnecting.

Why they stuck to the Innomedia crap is a mystery. There are plenty more manufacturers out there of VoIP adaptors that are SIP capable.
