Hi i'm in akl for 2 weeks (fr chch) so we thought we'd buy BB at $30/gb/week from tomizone.com instead of buying a $250 VF vodem and then paying $30/gb-ish.

The options are to connect to 'auckland city wifi' or 'tomizone hotspot'.

But every 2-20 seconds it shows the page "redirecting please wait" - it redirects to the Wifi login page and everything you've typed or had on your screen is lost.

We're on the 17th floor on Cintra Lane off Whitaker place off Symond street with unobstructed harbour views and views to the A+ hospital. ie a 90 degree pan view. the other 270 degrees are concrete.

ANy ideas?
I have 4/5 bars on the wifi. Sit at the window. The bars never drops below 4. I never get disconnected as far as i can see. But the darn thing gets to relogin (almost) every time i click something! i'm ok with it (well not actually) but driving my wife and kids nuts when they're trying to play a cartoon clip or some ABC game online or when wifey facebooking or replying email and everything gone if she forgets to Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C!




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

cookies are enabled.

sometimes it just redirects for no reason when i still have a good connection. sometimes the connection hits a brick wall and i'm forced to manually re-login. sometimes need to re-login 2-3 times to get internet even though each login was successful.

who knows!

Have you rung Tomizone (09 974 3950), they are very hard to get hold of but once you get them on the phone they normally are very helpful, most likely the router you are on needs a reboot, common problem.

Edit: they are also at Level 5, 1 Queen St, probably not far from you based on what you say.
