Frequently Asked Questions

My Router is not supported, or the reconnect does not work. What shall I do?

Reconnect requests a new IP address from your internet service provider in order to reduce or remove mandatory host wait times between file download. Reconnect/Requesting a new IP address will only work if your IP address is dynamically issued by your ISP. It will not work if you have a fixed IP address, or if your ISP reissues you the same IP.

If it still does not work, contact our support
