Hey guys,

Made a trip out to a friends house in the rural-ish area. He has Woosh wireless, and was plugging in via the ethernet cable. I took out a Wireless Router and setup PPPoE to login to the woosh account to give him wifi for his phone and laptop instead of being cabled in to the couch. He's since told me that the internet goes a lot slower on the laptop this way and has reverted to plugging the laptop in if he wants to use it.

There is no other wifi around so can't be interference, and I have never used Woosh personally but cannot understand why it would be any slower? Am I missing something?

Cheers

which wifi are you using, 802.3n?

 

 

You setup the router with the Woosh password, so does that meen you have replaced the existing woosh device with a 3G router, or plugged it into the existing modem. So you have ethernet from the modem straight to the new router? Nothing else in between? It might be something to do with the DNS thats setup in the router. Check that Woosh is the primary DNS, which seems to be

 

 

Server: ns1.woosh.co.nz

 

Address: 202.74.207.10

Brand new TPLink router, 802.11n. The woosh modem plugs into the WAN port on the router. The DNS are set to auto on both router and laptop.
