  2. MegaSPEED Web Accelerator cannot connect to the MegaSPEED Service...

    Here is a step-by-step list of things you should verify:

    1. Check that you have successfully connected to your ISP in your usual manner (e.g. Did your dial-up connection successfully connect to your ISP?). This step is independent of whether or not you launch MegaSPEED Web Accelerator.

    2. Ensure that the ISP you are connected to is, in fact, the one that supplied you with the MegaSPEED Web Accelerator software and connection information. In most cases, you cannot connect to another ISP and use the same MegaSPEED Web Accelerator connection settings.

    3. Verify that the Connection information located in the Settings dialog is the same as that provided to you by your ISP.

    4. If you are running firewall software, make sure that a firewall rule is present that allows access to the Remote Server Port (located in the Advanced Connection Settings dialog)

    5. Try uninstalling MegaSPEED Web Accelerator and then re-install it.

    Now try restarting MegaSPEED Web Accelerator by exiting the program and then relaunching it.

  3. The MegaSPEED Service does not allow connections from your current IP address...

    The most likely reason you would receive this error is when you connect to the Internet using a different service provider from the one providing you with MegaSPEED Service.  Since we allow this through the entire Internet, you should never receive this error message.  If you do, please contact us immediately.

  4. Your username and/or password were not accepted by the MegaSPEED Service...

    Sometimes, this is the error that you get when MegaSPEED just hasn't connected. Check the Connection Troubleshooting Page. The username and password are pulled from the active dial up connection.  We require you to enter a valid username and password to use the MegaSPEED Service.

  5. The MegaSPEED Service could not be started due to an authentication timeout ...

    Try reconnecting to the Internet.
