    Hi,

    Whenever I download files from rapidshare, I have to wait 60 min. before each download

    Is there any way I can bypass it in safari

    I tried google, but most of the articles are for windows

    thanks

    Even the how-tos for Windows don't really work. If you use RapidShare much, it's usually worth the few bucks it costs for the least expensive membership.

    The only way around it is to change you IP address each time you try and download a new file. You need a special router to do that I think . . .

    Better to just buy the membership in my opinion.

    what about megaupload?

    i tried changing ip address, but then i won't be able to connect to internet
    so that route is not possible

    i use it to download only once or twice in 2 months.
    so, it doesn't make sense to buy a membership.

    any more suggestions
    this has to be a problem for everone,rt

    To get round it, I just disconnect my router from the internet / phone line then reconnect it (or switch it off & on). Most internet accounts have a dynamic IP address so it'll change every time you reconnect to the internet.

    It's the IP that rapidshare logs

    You could go premium.

    A 2 day membership is €4,50 or $7

    It's not that much

    I realize that this is an old thread but would like to add my comment:

    don't waste your time just BUY the access privileges RapidShare offers much much more than downloads.
