Hi

whenever I try to gamespot this message comes

 

 

Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out" The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.
For assistance, contact your network support team.

 

Does anyone else have this problem ?

That's awfully strange, nothing to do with cookies is it? I'm no expert to be honest but i'm using Firefox and it's working with that.

lol ... this is your problem.
Try this next time you get this error;.. Start>run>type CMD ond click OK , ;Type pinggamespot.com and hit enter.If you get 4 replys you are connected If you get 'request timed out' you are not connected ,, If you are connected in the same page type ' netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt' and enter, tap F3 key on top of your comp to repeat it 2 or 3 times and restart the computer, this should take care of any TCP errors

basically whats wrong normally is that this error means that your browser is requesting an ip that has been cached locally or in your network , but it's not responding , or it's taking too long to respond . usually a well configured caching engine ( or any caching Technique )would solve the problem as well a bad configured one would cause it to happen .

basically reboot ya modem for 30 secs, unlplug the lot, clean yur cache, also type start - run and type %temp% delete all files in there ALL OF THEM.

this will slve your issue, dns/ network errror on ya pc :P
