Anyone else?

Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"

Since yesterday I've been getting this with most of my googling. And Yahooing.

It's more than a little frustrating when you're trying to find information.

Is it just me or is it an Etisalat problem?

Strange you mention Etisalat coz Du connection showed the same message but I notice only for about 30 mins between 1am and 2am, maybe on and off at various times throughout the w-e. Called DU guy and he guessed my query before I completed it (implying loads of complaints) and said 'upgrading server' so I said did you give notice of this? He said no... I said how long...he said "don't know"....

I have been wondering the same thing. I have du and it has been happening for the last week or so. Cannot get onto sites like wiki one day, then gulfnews the next day, etc. Works fine through a proxy though.

Makes you wonder if another cable got cut somewhere.

Thanks guys - it doesn't ease the frustration but at least I know I'm not alone.

i*, that's another for my 'Dubai Service' file.

yeah lol i was gonna say...add it to your 'customer service' label lol ;-)

Glad I was of service?

Etisalat and Du one and the same, hey? lol Puts my mind at ease I'm not paying a premium without Etisalat customers enjoying the same benefits hehe

p.s. try call du 04 390 5555 when u next got prob...i find these days, du has same probs as eti! (?!) lol

We've been having problems with a Duh connection every afternoon for the past couple of months. It's almost impossible to get online at all after 2pm! Duh engineers say its because too many people are trying to access.

That's why in our house its called the "Internot"
