It's gotten terrible in the last week

by stress junkie In reply to bandwidth

The number of times that I get a timeout trying to load a page is almost equal to the number of times that it works. Not to mention the problem of trying to post a message only to have the connection time out and see the 'The page you requested cannot be found' message.

I said it before. That 300 baud accoustic modem just isn't doing the job.

Blame Microsoft

It's the 2003 clustering - obviously implemented to fix this problem - brought about a new issue with the same result.

Don't worry though... it is a priority issue - trust that they are working towards perfecting this.

After all

It took YEARS for M$ to develop their inferior products to acturately crash systems on a concistant basis. It takes a while to pile the crap that high.

Time outs?

by deepsand In reply to bandwidth

Not happening here or at the office.

Perhaps there are external issues in play.

Disable the proxy detect

by house In reply to bandwidth

The "page cannot be found" is a common error.... a timeout on the other hand....

Make sure that you are not either going through a proxy, or the auto detect is not enabled for your local area connection.

I'd reply but...

by jdmercha In reply to bandwidth

I often get page not found. Probably about 1 out of every 10 pages.

No Problems

by MarkB-Ohio In reply to bandwidth

I haven't had the problem once here.. Only been here about a week but I have done quite a bit of reading and not a problem from my end so far.
