Hello. I am getting winsock error 10060 the connection timed out when using Wi-Fi connecting with just one of the sites. I pinged and it's fine too. When using wired connection it works fine.

I ran into a similar situation yesterday trying to download from a site I use all the time -- and the download windows hung up on "waiting for socket". It did this for several hours. When I tried much later, it all worked OK. I think it's just a matter of the site being overloaded at the time.
