How did you post this?Does anyone have the same problem? Can receive emails and send emails but cant go online for the past 3 days with my 3G Pci card.
What will be the solution for this?
PM me all of the above inserted in all the other stuff I need (as per my sig) and I'll ask.The Vodacom network seems to be highly erratic and is giving this kind of problems for the last few weeks. I am experiencing the same where I could receive emails this morning but not access the internet at all. I am also experiencing the following since the 4th week of January with my Linksys wireless router and Option HSPDA card:
1. Card show Vodacom and HSPDA network with signal strength good but router is unable to connect, or
2. Card connects on HSPDA but no communication takes place
3. Card shows connected but now traffic and network name change to "limited service"
4. Card will show HSPDA and Vodacom with signal strenght changing from good to no service and back and continuing like this
5. Can connect from time to time with good speeds and then later back to problems above.
6. Speedtest when connected show much slower communication form my card back to tower than before (used to get about 350bps and now 109 or lower)
7. Can connect to GPRS but slower than 9600bps dial up.
I am calling Vodacom regularly and received last Friday the following reference number: 52-qwz2k-kzny5. Vodacom called me this morning to say problems where experienced but resolved but not according to my experience. Can you perhaps help Vodacom3G

Ughhh... I posted with a pc.... ( from work )How did you post this?
Sounds like you cannot do HTTP on port 80 but can do other protocols.
Do you use your PC on more than network? For example at work on the LAN or on WiFi at work/home?
Do you use a proxy server? Have you checked it's disabled when you connect via 3G?
Did you check firewall rules maybe?
If you can update your location information we can see if other 3G users in your area have the same problem. If internet browsing id down for 3 days all hell would've broken loose by now, so it's either something on your system or local to your area.
If you're sure it's not your firewall s/w, then it sounds like malware could be the problem, even an Intranet Exploder [searchforum]BHO[/searchforum], install Firefox if you haven't already done so - download it from your work PC...Ughhh... I posted with a pc.... ( from work )
Anyway thanks for your response, I appreciate this.
I have talked with Vodacom a couple of times today and then they say this and then they say that.
Up to know I have done a full reset of my browser to default and flushed the DNS. Also have cleaned the cookies and history for what its worth.
Its only one laptop and its not on a home network or any network for that matter.
Dont use a proxy and my default dial up connection is 3G preferred.
In regards to the firewall I have enabled and disabled this and still nothing.
Im located in Silverlakes / Pretoria
Looking forward to your suggestions and thans for the help.
valid point.Is the mail set to a DNS name or IP?
Mine for example is an IP - so I would be able to send emails but not browse if DNS was borked.
Seems like the IE browser was corrupted, I have installed Firefox and everything is working perfectly again. Thanks ic!If you're sure it's not your firewall s/w, then it sounds like malware could be the problem, even an Intranet Exploder [searchforum]BHO[/searchforum], install Firefox if you haven't already done so - download it from your work PC...
Don't encourage the man!, if he had half a chance we'd all be on Ubuntu / Firefox / GMailSeems like the IE browser was corrupted, I have installed Firefox and everything is working perfectly again. Thanks ic!
While that is great news, I hate to have to break it to you, but I think malware must have been the cause of Intranet Exploder's corruption - best to run a lot of scans with reputable anti-malware s/w...Seems like the IE browser was corrupted, I have installed Firefox and everything is working perfectly again.

Absolutely .Don't encourage the man!, if he had half a chance we'd all be on Ubuntu / Firefox / GMail
Is that M$' virtual whatsit thingy? - faster in a VM than the host OS(Actually why not, I run Ubuntu (and XP) in virtual machines on my 3GHz Quadcore, 4GB RAM Vista system, and they both run faster than the host OS. Such fun being an early adopter.....)
There was a [regional] DNS issue yesterday - check v3g's posts from yesterday & today.I had exacly the same problem, late saterday and sunday.
I tried on 2 different laptops with 2 different usb modems. same problem
this was in the Grand Central area of Midrand, near galleger estate.
also thought it was some sort of DNS issue, as email, msn ect worked but no internet, on firefox / IE on both machines,
had problems most of the day untill i gave up.
