I have been trying without success to get my machine to download packages from the repositories. This worked initially and stopped about a week ago.

I have looked around on the web and realize here and there people mention having similar problems but nothing mentioned in those posts resolves this problem.

I can physically browse to the locations of the repositories but when I add them to the updater tool it always tells me that the connection has timed out. When I first installed the machine the response was also immediate when checking for packages or updates. Any help would be appreciated...
