1.) What is the error message that is displayed?
2.) Do both computers happen to be going through the same router?
3.) Try opening a command prompt (Start->Run->cmd) and type ping download.com...are all 4 packets received with 0% loss?
Let us know.
I think download.com is not accessible through my service provide TataIndicom VSNL. I tried accessing the site both through my laptop and PC and using different types of browsers. While rest of the CNET site is accessible including this forum, the domain download.com is not accessible.
I am not seeing anyone else reporting the problem. Hence I am assuming the problem to be very specific to my geography or ISP.
Unless, the problem is not found or resolved, we would be unable to access download.com and forced to use other websites like tucows.
Any help well appreciated here.
