I bought a used ATT wireless router off of eBay because my new laptop would not maintain a good connection with the older 2Wire 1800G wireless router I was using. The price was less than a third of what ATT was asking for the exact same model/router (new). It's been working just fine -- never an issue. The newer router with 'n' technology means I have WPA2 for better security.
My concern is this: I had a slowdown in my 'net connection, so I ran a speed test and the test results said the server was 'pinging' in Tijuana!! What? I called my ISP and they said don't worry about it...just make sure you have a password on your network access or whatever. I have no idea of the credentials of the person I was speaking with. But by the end of the conversation, I wasn't convinced.
Does this mean my internet traffic is being routed through Tijuana? Does this present a security risk. Should I go buy a new router direct from ATT?
