for about a week i have had issues with wifi not connecting at home, I get a popup in the style of a captive portal login but it simply says "sucess"
also I have has issue with my desktop not connecting to apple store, error -50, network timeout.
ISP is telstraclear cable.
full story starts here......
I have has the Iphone5 since the day it came out, no issues till last week.
about a week ago i purchaced 5 albums on my phone from apple.
three tracks dident download, they kept getting stuck as "try again"
then i found that application updates and pod casts would not download either.
google sujects that a reset of network settings on the phone might help, it did not help :-(
google also sujects that a full sync with itunes on a dekstop can help.
my Itunes would not connect ot the apple store for username/password (error -50)
downloads stuck with network timeout
at this point i decided to re-install itunes, that was harder than expected because i could not get a clean download. the download kept dropping out at about 20%.
NOTE: other websites seem fine.
so I did a full re-install of windows XP and then Itunes.
Itunes would still not let me login to my account, error -50.
then I tried a VPN to france, and it worked.
5 tests in a row.
with VPN and it all works.
with out VPN it wont work.
also of note, wifi at a friends house worked as expected, with no popup.
I get the feeling that the issues might all be connected with my ISP.....
anyone got any thoughts?
