Alright we just noticed that certain IP ranges are totally useless atm to surf sites.
on 124.13 I could not even complete my transfer on Paypal despite waiting for how many minutes.
I however transferred to 60.54 and suddenly everything went smoothly. There is definitely a Streamyx issue here since I did the http surfing without any VPN. 118.100 does not work for me either.
We invite people to post here on what IP ranges work.
Update 18 August 2008: This continues to be a problem.
