Hi Guys,

Happy New Year to you all and hope you all had a great xmas and time with friends and families. I hope you are able to help me out with an issue I am having. I rent a room where I'm living and my landlord has installed a router/extended wifi aerial in my room which is a TP-Link box. Not exactly sure how this works but when I connect to it rather than the main house wifi, it's a lot faster which is good. However, recently I've noticed that I cannot logon on the VATSIM network when I'm on that wifi connection. I used to be able to do this.

Having said this, the internet here really isn't the best by all means when living on an island but certainly over the past 1-2 months I've been having serious issues with it. So much so that I just don't logon to VATSIM as I know it won't connect.

I'm just thinking that it might be a security firewall or something that's blocking things but honestly I wouldn't know where to start. Has anyone had this problem before? I have access to the TP-LINK Admin page on the internet if people need to see various settings or anything.
Would really like to get this fixed. Interestingly I've just tried it on both networks, connecting to VATSIM on vPilot and actually none of them connected up to the network.

Many thanks,

#529790 Something is interrupting the connection to VATSIM. It's in the pipe between the server and your computer. It could be caused by server interruption, intermittent internet connection, router issue, power issue affecting the router, etc. A large number of variables/possibilities. Most people who have reported persistent EndReceive issues have reported that rebooting the router resolves the issue (though some members report it is an intermittent resolution). Suggest rebooting your wifi and the router and seeing if that helps. If not, you're probably in need of a more stable connection. Perhaps the house connection, albeit slower, would work better for your VATSIM connections and save the wifi for other things. Good luck.
