      Giganews and Sky Broadband help!

      Hi There,

      I am having mega problems accessing giganews via sky broadband. I can't connect to the MIMO server with my password and username. Its as if Sky are blocking the connection. I have tried to access MIMO via another network and I have had no problem, it would appear that it is definitely a sky issue. I have tried to connect on both a windows and mac laptop and it just won't connect. Though it is letting me connect via vypervpn, though this slows everything down. Is anyone else having similar problems?

      Cheers
      Mark

      Yes, see my post from yesterday. I thought it may have been a Windows7 service pack issue but I actually think it is more to do with some iffy routing as sometimes it works and others it wont.

      Starting my PC in safemode seemed to fix it but I think that was just coincidence.

      Hi Smithy,

      Did you manage to fix it? I can connect via vypervpn but it is so slow. I am on a mac and windows laptop and getting the same problem. I called Sky and they said it should be working fine, I have done everything to try and resolve this problem.

      Cheers
