      EDIT : Hmmm. Just been into my router and I don't see anywhere where you can change the DNS settings. Mine is the D-Link DSL-2640S.
      You can set them on your PC, these over-ride the router settings. Instructions on the OpenDNS web site.

      I have Windows Vista Ultimate and I'm getting the IP blocked shown.

      How do I get around or fix this problem.

      Thanks in advance.

      Re: Rapidshare - IP blocked?

      Try changing your DNS servers.

      start > control panel > network and sharing centre > manage network connections on the right hand side > local area connection / wireless network connection properties > ipv4 properties >

      Preferred: 212.135.1.36
      Alternate: 195.40.1.36

      Or try OpenDNS.

      Click ok and see if you're good to go.

      Thanks user05, I'll try the control panel method first and see if that solves it. Appreciate the help.

      Re: Rapidshare - IP blocked?

      Thanks so much user05. The method using the Control Panel worked for me. Just one thing, but... Will adding Preferred: 212.135.1.36 and Alternate: 195.40.1.36, affect any other sites or affect my internet connection?

      Thanks for the help its much appreciated

      Nope, they shouldn't at all. They are still Easynet DNS (UKOnline's I believe), but hopefully will resolve the issue. If not, try OpenDNS as the fellas said previously.

      Thanks for the reply. What is Open DNS (is it a program or part of Windows) and how do I use OpenDNS. Thanks.

      So I just download the free version?
      Is there anything I need to do once I have downloaded & installed it, i.e alter anything/alter settings?
