I have been getting these a lot lately. Is this on newshostings end or do I need to make some changes ?
I get the download ok.

It's not unusual for the connection to drop out. Newsbin will just re-connect. It's more likely if you use wifi when downloading since Wifi is inherently unreliable.

Ok Thanks. I don't use wifi. I did get a 400mbps connection. Seems like I'm getting throttled back now.

If you use too many connections you'll get errors too. I use Usenetserver. Been pretty happy with them.

Honestly if you have excessive connection errors, I'd look at your security software. Maybe make it ignore Newsbin's internet access.

Well I'm back up to speed. I did a computer reboot and Also rebooted the modem. It must have cleared something out. I'm at 400mbs and a little higher.
Thanks for all input on this. I might try the one server site you said you use as well.
