Posted: Tue Aug 07, 2012 7:07 pm Post subject: yambol area help required with computer stuff!
Any computer buffs that could help with suggestions? I have a home wireless LAN with several WINDOWS pcs working normally. Got a new Android tablet that has problems with website content on this LAN but not anywhere else - like at a hotspot. Can't work it out... Very annoying when your computer works anywhere but at home.
Thanks for the reply; nice to know you're not alone.
Ye, I've rebooted left right and centre, and after every change as it's an Android tablet and seems to want this more than a windows pc.
I reset the router and changed channels to the several of the preferred ones as it was set to no. 8. I also reset the encryption as it was on WEP.
The problem is that the tablet works well in town in a hotspot or at the IPs office but gives me a list instead of the normal page layout or reverts to the correct layout but with blanks with a question mark icon for the larger pictures when at home. This is particularly true on Facebook.
I have minimised my LAN so that the only equipment running is the WAP and a switch on the roof and the router in the house. The router uses wireless n and is - obviously - set to a 2.4 Ghz channel as the tablet wouldn't cope wit 5 Ghz. Coming round to the notion that there is something funny with the roof equipment - or with the servers where a bounce occurs, which is at least twice between me and Yambol.
With the extra info you may have a better idea what might be wrong.

Have you tried doing a ping test on the tablet? (available at speedtest.net)
I couldn't say with certainty but it could be a packet loss problem, if the ping is more than 50 (ususally it should be about 20-30) then the chances are you are losing data somewhere, which may indicate a hard drive corruption (but then one would expect the same results in the IP's office etc), or it could indicate a problem with the specific connection to the tablet (assuming it's not wi-fi), ie, a small nick in the cable etc., loose wire in the connection pins.
Are all of the PC's on individually wired connections? You could ping test them too and compare results with the tablet.
If all pc's return fast pings and the tablet doesn't then it's the connection to the tablet or the tablet drive. If they all return fast pings then I shall say no more.

Try using a different browser - I know it doesn't seem to make much sense but I've found my Android tablet sometimes does weird things with one browser but not with another. In any case, it's useful to have a few to choose from on various sites...coding ain't what it used to be!
