    yeh so basically i have this app on my phone, Tinder, everyone is using it these days, and it only seems to be not working in my own home. when i use 3G it works, when i use any other wifi networks at these uni or my mates it still works. just not through my home wifi? :S

    i have to switch wifi off to reply to people on it and its really annoying and also wasting my internet usage... any suggestions on why this is?


    thanks

    Don't know the app, but these kinds of issues sometimes trace to the dns of your ISP. It's good practice to have opendns or google dns (or both) added to your airports dns list:

    My thought exactly. Sometimes we as individuals begin to think "we" are the world when in reality "we" are only a very tiny part of the picture.

    I have heard of this app, I can verify that I am not, nor will ever be, using it. :)

    Do you see any message from the app when it's on wifi and not working?

    No need for it really.
