RE: 4G BROADBAND CONNECTS ONLY TO MELBOURNE BASED WEBSERVER WEBSITES

Pretty much self explanitory. My 4G broadband dongle only connects to webserver sites feed from servers it would seem that are physically located in Melbourne. eg. ABCnews, TripleJ, AFL.com, BOM.gov, etc. It wont even let me connect to Google ?????

Can anyone explain this....? Is the internet broken or what. Chinese DDOS attack already this soon after their bioweapon pandemic deployment? BTW I am located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne as I type.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Not all of those servers are located in Melbourne (ABC and BOM are in NSW).

 

It's more likely a problem with the DNS server that your dongle is currently using.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
