ok heres the deal.
im with telewest broadband, have been for ages and its for the most part worked fine.
recently everything started going pair shaped.
Internet explorer still works fine. so does msn messanger and Bitcomet.
the problems come when i try useing fixfox and online games like guildwars and steam.
fixfox says :
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at ...............
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.
everytime i try to use it, no matter what website I go onto.
the games open normally and try to run their automatic update checks but cant seem to get any further.
they say connecting to server then dont seem to be able to find the server they need.
this has also happened with other software when it trys to automaticly update.
i turned off my usual firewall and nothings changed.
i called the telewest helpline but after over an hour on hold i waved the white flag and hung up.
i have no clue what could be doing this and cant think of anything iv changed before it happened.
can anyone help?
thnx Adam J
