      If I download a fair amount it will stop, wait 5-10 minutes it works again then stops again. Sky are throttling?? It works perfectly on Orange BB next door.
      Sounds like you have a similar problem to me using wireless, when the connection was flooded with a big download it would run at max for a while and then die, after 5-10mins it would start up again and continue to do that until the download was complete.

      I found that looking at the router logs the LCP was going down and then back up again in about 5-10mins.

      Connected via ethernet and all the problems went away, I now use homeplugs with much better success and download at 16.4Mb all the time.

      I've been getting this and crap speeds from rapid and so's a friend on BT. I think that this has happened since rapidshare announced some changes. i bet if we got a premium account it would work!

      Hi Guys,

      I've been having the same access problems recently but i have worked out a quick-fix.

      when you're typing in download links or the site add this prefix:

      https://ssl.rapidshare.com

      try that and lemme know

      I wonder if the links in the above message being flagged by Outlook as 'unsafe' is significant.

      That works a treat ... thanks.

      I had rapidshare stop working on me around 10pm last night and it's not come back since. I've sent SKY an email and had an automated response.

      Is it actually worth ringing them or are they simply going to deny blocking rapidshare? Has anyone had any success phoning them with this issue?

      Been annoying especially as I just renewed my account.

      Of course as I type this Flashget suddenly starts downloading the links that have been stuck for hours doing nothing, typical. Couldn't access their Home or News pages, weird.
