Usenet down again?

Is it just me or is Usenet down again? (irrespective of whether I try text.usenet.etc or simply usenet.etc it seems to be having extreme connection problems - mostly resulting in lovely timeouts).

Works now, but still takes upto 10 mins or so to finish "authorizing"

Do you mean "authorizing" as in user name/passy? If so, you should be leaving those fields blank for plusnets servers!

It used to work perfectly ....... and I've not changed anything. It's only the past few months it's started to seriously degrade.

... and yep, authorize as in U/P (well, I'm guessing it's the U/P it's authorizing - it doesn't actually say).

So clear those user/passy fields in the server settings and try again.
I appreciate you say that you changed nothing from previous times.............but it can't hurt to try eh? Wink

Did you save the changes you made? IE check the server properties to make sure the changes you made stuck.
