I have a computor question. Let me try to succiently explain. I
noticed when downloading video clips from a yahoo group ... yahoo
goes to several different address f1.grp.yahoofs.com f2.
grp.yahoofs.com, etc... I think it goes randomly to from f1- f6...
When it trys to download a clip from the f4.grp.yahoofs.com, each
and every time, I get the message it can't find the server, meaning
it can't find the address on the Internet, and thus can't download
the clip.... This happens consistantly ONLY when trying to connect
to the f4.grp.yahoof,com server is my problem connection. With all
the other f grp.yahoof.com servers, I have no probelem download. Is
there a simple explaination of this and is there simple fix? Any ideas? My
computor function is fine... please, <_<

My best guess is that mirror is down, or possibly they've banned a block of IP addresses that happen to contain yours. IP addresses are routinely banned from most servers, for users for reasons of abusing privileges to port scanning.

Thanks for the reply... Do you think If I changed my IP address that could possibly solve my problem with downloading...?

It wouldn't hurt to try, but I'd guess it's most likely your entire IP range that's banned, so you may not be able to get around it without contacting Yahoo!.
