      I've no idea, what DNS servers are you using? Might be an issue with the Sky ones so maybe try OpenDNS if you've not already...

      I have tried both Sky and OpenDNS. Even had OpenDNS in the router rather than Sky and it still doesn't work.

      I noticed it says you are on Connect, is this correct? That is a different story :/

      I don't doubt it is :P hehe, but they use BT not Sky right?

      So if it is blocked here it may not be blocked by BT.

      It's working great again now and I am downloading files fine, for how long is a different story though :P

      Mate, read the Connect thread - I've never had anything less than 75% of my speed ever...must be one of the few who have no issues but I'm happy with it...and it's free

      As for being on Connect, through BT, it might be something to do with it...

      I have NO issues at all apart from Rapidshare now.

      try using RapidShare: Easy Filehosting instead of RapidShare: Easy Filehosting that seems to work for me on the ODD occasion when rapidshare fails to work.

      I have read that simply putting www. in front of rapidshare sometimes works. Many seem to have problems with RS, not just Sky users.

      Unfortunately that no longer works either . It is still working at the moment and it seems to block at peak times (obviously).

      It is obviously blocked when too many users connect I just wish they would stop it lol
