    Go to this page and test your connection: https://winworldpc.com/download/test

    If the IP addresses are different, then you have a problem with your ISP.

    We are aware of a few badly behaved ISPs that change IP addresses for each connection. This is unsupported behavior and breaks download systems like ours.

    You will either need to take the matter up with your ISP, use a different ISP, or use a VPN.

  • I can not download anything - Ip Addresses match with out a problem - all I get is a file information - checksum info etc.. nothing else..Nice Listing of Operating Systems though - too bad they can't be downloaded.

  • So what exactly happens when you click on the link for each mirror? You do know how to click a link, right?

    I suppose he clicked the mirrors.

  • Can I edit the hosts file to download?

  • Considering how many sites with mirrors automatically select a mirror and initiate the download, it wouldn't hurt to add one sentence to the download pages: "Select one of the mirror site links below to intiate the download". My first reaction when no download started was to follow the link for "check what site and mirrors report".

    Don't know if it is possible within the current scheme of things, but would sure be nicer for user and could reduce load on mirrors if the download technique used supported resuming an interrupted download instead of starting from scratch each time. Took me at least 5 tries on different mirrors and 1.5 GB of download just to successfully get one 625MB file, and my 100/20 Mbs connection to my ISP had no obvious problems with other sites. One of the failed download attempts failed almost at the end, several others near the mid-way point.
