    Everytime I click open a new tab to come on TSR, and press enter, it tells me its failed, and I'm not connected to the internet. When I troubleshoot the internet, it says the internet , and server failed, but the wifi and everything is fine. It takes about a minute for the internet and server to come back. Its happened about 10 times now, and it doesn't happen ever when I go onto other websites, its just TSR.

    Is something going on?

    Thanks.

    I can't figure it out either, maybe our computers don't connect to TSR in the same way as it does with other websites? Just w ild stab in the dark, I have no clue about internet stuff.

    Have you tried using it in a different browser to see if it works? Like firefox? I use firefox most of the time to access TSR, fine for me.

    I've been having this too, both right now and yesterday evening. In both Chrome and Firefox.

    Generally I will click "Open in new tab" on a few threads. All will fail to load. Then I will open each tab and refresh, once or twice, before they all work (generally they will either all work or all not work).

    For some reason I seem to be only getting this on my laptop, not on my desktop (Firefox and a more recent version than on my laptop). Though this could be time of day related - desktop I use morning/afternoon and late at night, laptop in the evening.

    Sounds a bit like TSR's servers or internet connection might be struggling with traffic during peak times?

    Yeah thats what I was thinking, i haven't tried it on a desktop so I can't say the same but I dunno.. doesn't seem to be a fix.

    I'm newbie here and using desktop. I didn't encounter such obstacle yet. If you're really in quandary I exhort you to discuss your problem with Admins perhaps they could help you out to get rid of this predicament.

    This sounds like it might be some sort of DNS issue. If you're having troubles, it may be worth setting up your computer to use different DNS nodes. Google has a guide of using their public DNS, which you can also apply to using DNS Advantage (156.154.70.1, 156.154.71.1) and OpenDNS (208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220) for added fallbacks.
