Finally things are back to normal, I no longer have to change .rar to .rar.html at the end of the rapidshare links to get them to download without timing out. Using FlashGot + FlashGet. Something was definately going on as I didnt make any configuration changes when this problem started.

I spoke to Orcon support and they were certain they were not limiting access. Anyone else have this problem?

what speeds do you guys get when downloading from rapidshare? sometimes it's great (400k+ in total over 4 or 5 downloads) but other times not so much...

Im with orcon. FS up/down running ADSL2+.

Most major exchanges have been upgraded so its just a case of having a adsl2 modem and setting it up correctly.

Slightly out of date but i used this. If you already have a adsl2+ modem just change the mode and see if it connects.
