BT Wifi with fon not connecting

Hi,

Just spent £40 and initially had a good connection for about 5 minutes. Now I'm unable to even use the Internet, websites just don't load and sometimes the connection doesn't even show.

What's going on? Why is it so flaky? I'm using it on a desktop machine with fixed wireless dongle.

Re: BT Wifi with fon not connecting

If you are connecting to a domestic router (ie someone with a home router that is sharing) then a number of factors could be the cause, they could be switching off their router, flooding their connection with traffic (they get priority). Domestic appliances interfere too, the microwave for instance and other routers or a lot of connections Luke yourself all affect performance.

Re: BT Wifi with fon not connecting

If you're intending to use PAYG BT Wi-Fi regularly with a desktop, I would think again. It's too unreliable and expensive for an ongoing broadband service.
