I have the following problem and really hope SOMEONE can assist me with this one.
When using either my Mac or PC and Chrome, IE or Firefox (I've tried them all) on my Telkom 4Mbps ADSL line with Netgear 300 router - I log into a site (have this problem with more than 1 site) with my username and password (I even tried ticking the option "remember me"), it logs me in, I can then see I'm logged in (shows my username on the screen), but then i click on one of the links and it seems to have logged me out and taken me back to the login screen (the other site who also doesn't keep me logged in doesn't take me to the login page but shows the login button as if i wasn't logged in)
Now, if I do the same thing, but use my phone as a hotspot for my Mac or PC to connect to (instead of using the ADSL line), and the phone is also not connecting to the local wifi but 3G (Vodacom), then I log in, click on the same link and it takes me to where I want to go instead of "kicking me out" and back to the login page.
My logic says it's either something to do with the router or the ADSL. If tried connecting directly to the router (using an ethernet cable) but had the same outcome.
Anyone encountered this before? Or anyone able to suggest some troubleshooting tips? I'd REALLY appreciate it!!!! Thanks!
