Default Rapidgator problem

I can't get Rapidgator to work. I can click on the download link, wait for the 180 second countdown, then type in the verification code, and nothing. It goes back to the download start page. I can go through the process a dozen times and get the same result everytime. I've used Firefox and Chrome and it doesn't make a difference. Any ideas?

Bookmark and try later

Try using a download manager

i've registered with a lot of filehosts as i found this occasionally
made a difference in busy times

When a file is first posted i usually wait till its off the first few
pages before even trying manually

Alas there is a practice on many forums of posters continually bumping threads to the top page
to try and maximise exposure so more free users potentially will upgrade to premium

No guarantees when your a free downloader that the server any file is on wont be
at full capacity

Slow or inaccessible hosts are nothing new - just supply and demand in play

Frustratingly slow hosts

I've had this similar problem with Rapidgator since March.
TBH it makes no difference whether they're busy or not & customer service are less help than buttsie
I gave up on them & don't bother touching an RG link as I know it's gonna be a waste of time

Took me 5 links to find an RG one that was not file not found


Just tested a small link 108mb currently sitting on page 5 classic pornstars

Keisha & Buffy Davis - Forbidden Bodies (1986) - 30 thanks - posted 31/8/2016
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/sho...&postcount=570

45 second count down - the demand on the server/host 75% lower
compared to the 180 seconds in post 1

download link appeared after captcha was entered first time

Only issue was on the captcha screen solvemedia had to be allowed via no script
otherwise the words wouldnt appear


I've said it previously but your always better off posting a link and asking others to test it
Right click the post number and cut & paste the address

For me occasionally , but rarely, I get the countdown & the next page can either show (or not) the captcha.
If that is entered correctly the next page is Rapidgators Home page

Disabled chrome ad-ons/extensions (adblock, etc) even smooth scroll ! I mean disabled All extensions.
Different browsers.. all to no avail

They honestly appear to be making life difficult & 'support' say it must be my cache I cleared that too,
numerous times

Looking thru my emails & I now recall I opened a free account 1st Jan 2015
by the 16th December I was removing/deleting my files out of frustration @ not being able to access them.

Something changed in early December 2015,
previous to that if I deleted RG cookies Everytime I could get a fair chance of a download ,
since then it's been impossible for me.

In December I asked support why their cookies appear to be blocking my IP?

I have of course checked for malware & all other obvious possibilities, then i read this page: https://community.virginmedia.com/t5...n/td-p/2937047
and I seem to be having similar issues as that user, so i thought i'd follow the advice given there to contact & request 'unblocking'.
...it seems I found it may have been an issue with my Internet Provider ??

VirginMedia are known arses for blocking fileshare sites
think I left it at that & since wrote RG off as a bad lot

anyhooo, that's just my experience
Thanks as ever for your continued help & advice to all members buttsie

I've done pretty much the same things. I've used two different browsers, disable all the ad blockers and so on, nothing. I even tried the browsers in private mode just to see if it would work. I have two different ISPs...DSL and a wifi hot spot. Tried both. That didn't make a difference. I tried creating a free account, that didn't work. The only thing left I can think of is to start a paying account. But I'm afraid I'll pay, and it will still not work, which means I'm wasting money.

Sounds very much like Filesonic revisited which was never really fully understood given
the hosts and the isps pretty much said tough luck to their customers

Random users even from the same ISP - mainly in the UK- couldnt get access - due to something concerning how the IP was being allocated - unless they bypassed their ISP
by using a virtual private network (VPN)

Unlike then there is a lot of info about thats easily found via free vpn tutorials
Torrent freak has articles on the best paid versions

Most who are using torrents or uploading mainstream content
would be using them to stay off the radar and out of the courts

Why You Need A VPN (And How To Choose One)
Alan Henry Sep 6, 2012

The most important thing you need to know about a VPN: It secures your computer's internet connection to guarantee that all of the data you're sending and receiving is encrypted and safe from prying eyes.

Thanks again buttsie Interested to learn from the VPN link you provided.

I've always left the technicalities to one side but there's only so long a person should suspend that ignorance


slightly connected note, as an admirer of the mathematician (& polymath)Cliff Stoll from his TED talks & videos on Numberphile.
I only recently learnt he was one of the first ever people to track a hacker so I ordered the book just yesterday

A VPN is a must while downloading from filehosters as you can download multiple files and also using premium link generators because they increase your download speed by suppressing restrictions.
