I wondered if anyone can help me.I use vodafone dongle (K3565) in Aviemore (ph221px) when I visit. I usually get 2 or 3 bar signal strength and apart from being fairly slow and occasionally disconnecting I manage to download the info I want.
Last week I was getting better than normal signal 3 bar all the time, but download speeds seemed very slow and my laptop would not download any pages. On returning home it worked fine so no apparent problem with laptop or dongle.
we do currently have a case raised against our mobile internet as we do have some issues which may pertain to your current situation in this area, the case reference for this is: HD1510027 and all updates relating to this issue can be found in this thread.
I have just checked the local cell in that site. as there isn't very good coverage on that postcode I suspect this might be the reason as the cell (496) is working fine but is looking a bit busy.
