    So I just recently signed up to usenet with an unlimited download account and I downloaded newsrover from them to use to download things. I just downloaded a group of files that was about 50 gigabytes and that downloaded just fine, in less than a day even. But now a couple days later anything I try to download doesn't work, it just keeps flashing "waiting 10 seconds to reconnect" and "proxy failed". What could have changed in the last couple days that this wouldn't work? This is driving me nuts, can someone please help me out?

    I'm not a pro at Usenet, but I'd be willing to bet your ISP is interferring. What ISP do you have?

    Comcast, but I was under the impression they were done with that kind of thing after the lawsuit was finished and with the cap on usage.

    I have a third party usenet service from usenet.com, those are not affected in this, comcast just shut down their own free service from giganews. Thanks for the info, but this doesn't explain my problem :(. I just wish usenet.com would get back to me but they'll probably wait until after this months service is over and I cancel.
