We just moved out to the middle of no where... lol. My best solution for internet is a Cradlepoint router with a Verizon 4G LTE enabled sim card installed. I have this at my house. Performance is solid.
Here is where my issue comes into play.
I have 2 phones (Android) and a couple of laptops (Win 7) that connect to the Cradlepoint router for internet access.
Both windows 7 laptops can browse to www.google.com without any problems.
Both android devices cannot connect to www.google.com. The built in Chrome browser just sits there. I can load every other webpage I tested on our smart phones. Its a really weird issue. The minute I disconnect from the Cradlepoint wifi router and go back to the builtin 4G on my phone, Google works...
Screams DNS but then why can my laptops access google.com...
So what is Google/verizon/android chrome browser doing?
I can ping google.com from my Android device using Fing Network Tools App. I get good responses.
I can get the google website to load on my android phone by browsing directly to Google's IP.
Oh one more thing... if I load install the Firefox mobile app on my phone I can browse to www.google.com. I can work around this issue but it seems a little ridiculous. Besides it breaks some other built in communication with google on my Smart phone, like connecting to the App Store.
