I used to download the Woodsmith podcasts on my old Dell. I now have a new Dell and I tried to download one and it failed and indication "timed out."

Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks

Hi SB

Many,Many things come into play, I would suggest you just use the old Dell for down load the Pod Cast items and let the new machine just be..

The old Dell doesn't have internet access. What would I have to buy a wireless something?

Thanks

Hi SB

I don't get it , didn't you say

"I used to download the Woodsmith podcasts on my old Dell."

How did you do that without internet access ?

Hi Steve,

You're more likely to time out on wireless than hard wired.

It may be that your firewall is blocking something, one possibility...but as Bob says, there are many possibilities of why. Are you able to normally download other files?

Ed......:-)

I have found that with my Dell ( about 3 years old) I need to just let it download and not do any other function.. surfing or anything else or it will freeze up or time out. It's like it get's side traced real easy

Corey:

Just the opposite. If I surf the net while downloading it will complete it. It got stuck at 142 mb of 166 for a while and I surfed around and it started back again.

Defies logic.

Why not plug the "old Dell" into the wireless router... most have jacks for ethernet cables as well as a wireless acess point. Does you new PC have Vista on it? Might have to turn some sercurity settings off for it to work.
