    I had problems with mine due to the caravan's aluminium paneling. Have you tried it outside?

    I bought a Vodafone broadband dongle about 2 years ago, tried it in the shop on my own laptop, worked great, could even access my work VPN with it. I got them to agree that I'd bring it back if by some chance it didn't work very well at home. Got home (2.5 miles from the shop), and the access speed seemed stupidly slow, did a speed test and it was 20% slower than dial-up. Needless to say, got a full refund the next day.
