    Every time I try to connect to something "ftp://......." it tries to connect for about a minute and then i get "Cannot find server [​IMG]The page cannot be displayed

    The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings."

    I needed to download some firmware upgrades but I can't connect to their server. This happens on any file beginning with ftp. Any ideas how to fix this?

    have you tried an ftp program? wsftp or flash fxp are both easy enough to use.

    I'd imagine that a firewall is preventing you from accessing port 21.

    yea these 2 are prolly your culprits... either IE is bein a bish or the port is blocked somewhere.

    CuteFTP works great for me.

    Filezilla is a great easy to use and free ftp client
