      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      Anyone who takes the time to Google for 'rapidshare problems' will find that not just Sky users have problems. This thread on TB gives some explanations on some of the problems and although it is concerned mainly with UKOnline, it could also apply to Sky. Free users should remember that they are severely limited in the amount they can download per hour, the throttling could be from Rapidshare's end, rather than Sky.

      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      My speeds from rapidshare are NEVER slow. It maxes my connection everytime I download, but this issue is STILL not fixed. My downloads will randomly stop and I have to wait half an hour to an hour to get them started again (yet someone else can download the exact same file, so the issue cannot be the server). The issue may be DNS related but I really wish they would fix this thing .

      When downloading, if I change the server to rs28.rapidshare.com, it will generally 8 times out of 10 work and will continue downloading. The normal rapidshare.com server will half of the time, connect fine after that :S

      Yea, but the actual rapidshare.com is down again (using a proxy I can access it fine), which causes problems since I use rapidshare download manager and it does not support the prefix ssl.

      Unless you have free call through Sky Talk, don't waste your money, you will get nowhere. If you have a look at other forums, just about every ISP is being accused of blocking RS.

      Which would suggest that the problems are at RS end with this many problems at so many people on different ISP's.
