Have just rung Virgin. Luckily got through to someone English who appologised and explained that theres a router issue with their servers. Changing to the webcache.virginmedia.com:8080 should work for everyone on Internet Explorer but select users on Firefox and Chrome. It is being fixed as a type and they estimate it to take 24 hours.
I have not had nay problems with websites loading but I am having issues with downloading patches for the games I play. WoW and Heroes of Newerth patches won't even start to download and end up crashing everytime I try to patch. I thought they might need re-installing but when I tried to redownload HoN I can't even run the .exe from the HoN website to start the install. Is this part of the probem being experienced by other people?
well this proxy does allow me to use websites but under proxy my speeds are so much slower. on a 50mb connection using proxy im getting 10mbps max to speedtest and a low of 2mb. I cannot log into my FTP it just keeps timing out. (Not virgin media FTP) I cant access speedtest.net, pingtest.net and also hosting-needs.com which is american best webhosting site.
I dont know of any other websites i have problems with. Under proxy i can access them all but just cant log into my FTP. Plz hurry and fix this i have had this problem for like 3 4 weeks now.
Virgin Media and its technical glitches never seem to end.
