Good luck Mosha,
Hey I like your quote!
My connection improved when I went to broadband. I don't think it was the better bandwidth - simply a different ISP, so the routing was changed. To back up this thought: I had a speed limited plan so I was down to 28.8 for part of last month and could still access RetouchPro without problem.
I'm guessing it was one or more congested servers somewhere along the line that was causing the problem for me. I never did find out for sure.

Thanks Mark:

Well guys, It's official, I BELONG SOMEWHERE!!! I belong to the "Foreign RP problematic connection fighters League", and the bad news is that all of us in this forum which are "foreign" to the US are members of this League. (I told you I was going mad from frustration not beeing able to work and learn from RP, so you will have to excuse me).
I've tried connecting through a DSL wide band connection, (at the office) and still have the pbroblem, so after reviewing all the facts, I came to the conclusion that it has to do with something related to our different countries Internet connections.

Be brave my friends, and don't dispair....
Love to all
Mosha ( smilie winking), (remember I can't even see the smilies)

Trace Route

Similar to a PING, this will tell you where ur packets r going & how long it takes. Serves to keep u from wondering if it's ur browser & u might be amazed. Search Google 2 find site that does this.

http://www.dslreports.com/tools will allow u to test ur connect speeds vs others in ur area (Mine is INSANE!). Test during non-peak hrs- makes 100% difference

Hi HTH-Larry.-

Thanks for your tip, I'll try to follow your advice, though I must tell you that for the moment, everything is working ok again (cross my fingers for it to last)
But I'll keep monitoring it.

Different paths

Glad it's OK now.

If a fast server is down, ur packets will be sent to slower alternates. Distance is unimportant since packets go at speed of light.
I once traced a route that was Fl > Ga > England > USSR > China ... Ca > Va !! This was faster than an all USA route that it later had to take.

See http://www.dslreports.com/faq/2310 re ROUTER.
