Re: news.plus.net problems

Not the same problem IMHO.   It is still intermittent with only the occasional success.

Re: news.plus.net problems

Can you try rebooting to see if you have more joy on a different gateway?

Re: news.plus.net problems

Just tried form the router:-
{admin}=>ping
proto := ip
addr = 216.196.109.145
[count] = 5
[size] = 100
[interval(ms)] = 100
[DF-bit] = disabled
[srcaddr] = 0.0.0.0
: ping proto=ip addr=216.196.109.145
Legend : Ping successful(!)
        Ping Timeout(.)
        Hit ctrl-g to abort...
.....

Re: news.plus.net problems

Any more suggestions for my original problem?  I am still getting this issue intermittently, but most of the time.  Strangely it is failing to fetch articles always on the same newsgroup today.  Other newsgroups are OK (comp.databases.ingres).  IIRC it normally fails on the same newsgroup in any one day, but that group varies from day to day.
