Thanks , i had forgotten to re-lock it. The guys from WN insisted i reset the router which of course changed it back to auto :-)

Any idea what tower 364 is, as this seems to be the default if i lose Kaiaua or Mangatarata?
More headaches this morning with no internet for 1/2 hour or so despite heaps of router restarts and resets. Wireless Nation are worse than useless with their support as i'm still waiting for a call back!

361 is Maramarua
Also note cell sites will have individual PCIs for each sector. Most cell towers have 3 sectors

So it would appear that from home just south of Puriri Kaiaua is the No 1 choice, then Maramarua, occasionally Tahuna then Mangatarata. Kaiaua seems to work well and thats were the aerial is optimised for, downloads in the 20-40Mbs range, some days in the 50's. Uploads 5-15Mbs which i can cope with.
Very frsutrating though when things go down with Wireless Nation (who i guess are resellers for Vodafone?) and we cant get hold of them and i just get this coming up on the screen!

Yes WN re wholesale customers of Vodafone.
I think there were some intermittant issues they had experienced - the end user experience of which I'm not entirely sure of. But I know thats been sorted as of about a week ago. Unsure if thats made a difference?
Sorry to hear of any issues you've had. If I were in your situation I would send an email with feedback and details directly to upper management. Sometimes that kicks things into action?
