    Cant access hotfile

    Been having this error for a few days now, I have only tryed to log into Hotfile once and then it says this


    Too many failed attemtps to login from this IP address. Try again in 10 minutes.

    I am with Sky Broadband, I did google the problem and it seems like they may have blocked this aswell as Rapidshare, Megaupload etc before so anyone else on Sky Broadband having this problem ?

    Mind be asking who you're ISP is ? I am wondering if it is SKY's end or Hotfiles end. So annoying considering I just bought a 3 month subscription.

    Thanks for that, I am hoping they haven't blocked it. Maybe I downloaded too much this month, and they blocked my IP or something.

    Try using a proxy to access the site so it'll hide your external IP address.

    It has now blocked me, I was signed in but signed out and will not let me back in.

    But just used a proxie and it's let me in, so it's sky that is blocking it.

    I have found a good way how to still use your hotfile account, install opera browser and then just install the turbo surf and it has just let me log in again.

    I can confirm that's just worked for me, Thanks.

    I'm with BT and every time I try to DL from Hotfile it starts off OK but the speed drops to less than 1mbps. It's a crap file host.

    I'm on BT and Hotfile is essentially throttled on weekends and after 4pm weekdays, don't know if it's the ISP or hotfile itself. It got blocked completely a week ago and their was a rumour it may have been put (wrongly as they did with rapidshare before that) on the IWF dodgy websites list that some ISP's use to filter content.

    Just thought I would let you's know that it was working for me again last night.
