      Unhappy Rapidshare problems??

      Hi,

      In the past I have used rapidshare fairly regularly and never had any problems (apart from annoyingly having to wait between downloading files for rapidshare's fair usage )

      Over the last couple of weeks i just cannot downlaod anything.

      Sometimes i get the message "All our download slots are full, please try again later".....which is fine, as i understand that it can get pretty busy at peak times

      Other times though i am getting "your I.P address xxx.xxxxx.xxx is already downloading a file, please wait until it is complete" or something to that effect. Thing is, I haven't downloaded anything for weeks and further to that, the IP address shown is not my IP address (that im shown on most other sites and speed checkers etc)

      I have contacted rapidshare who have told me that they think its due to my ISP using proxy servers etc. Is this a known problem with Sky?

      What else might be causing me the problem?

      Thanks in advance for any replies

      Gaz

      p.s I have tried setting a download off at 7 in the morning before i go to work when all the yanks are in bed and there are download slots available but i get the same "IP is already in use" message. There must be a problem for the IP to be constantly downloading something at all hours of the day

      Rapidshare will blame anyone but them selves for problems. There are several threads on the forum dealing with RS. This is just one of them, have a read through and see if you get any idea, I think your IP problem has been encountered before..
      Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      Problem is, I can get a slot but it says that im already downloading something with the easynet filter IP address.

      Is there any way round that?

      I think it's a big con just to get you to pay.

      When on virgin I used to get the same about downloading files already, I just used one of there proxy servers.

      I do not know why people use Rapidcrap, plenty of others out there that don't bombard you with pay, pay, pay.

      If you have a premium RS account, and you are getting this message, it's possible (probable) that your account has been hacked - heck the download logs, and your usage stats - If this is the case, get RS to reset your accounnt and changet the pw! Also don't use the same pw for the Email account that is associated with your RS account!
