    Trouble with the 997 website

    Having a lot of trouble playing the 997 videos off the Porsche website. I have installed and re-installed the Shockwave player a few times, it worked the first time but not anymore. All I get is the broken Q sign.... What am I doing wrong??

    Re: Trouble with the 997 website

    Are you on broadband or narrow? I find I have no problems on my b.band connection, but as soon as I connect on n.band, I can't get anything due to errors.

    Don't worry, I have similar problems too, especially with the car configurator. It works, it doesn't work, it works, it doesn't...I gave up.
    Sometimes the Java stuff doesn't work, sometimes it asks for a shockwave update but nothing happens when I confirm "yes" and so on, long story with their website.
    And like a miracle, sometimes everything works fine.
    BTW: I have these problems with several different computers, so this seems to be very common.

    I like the design of the Porsche website but the technical solution isn't the best I'm afraid.
    I have a 3-3.5 MBit DSL line, imagine to have to use the Porsche website with a dial-up...OUCH.
    I also have a 3G PCMCIA card for my laptop (pretty fast, around 11 x ISDN speed) and I already gave it up to use that thing with the Porsche website.

    Even more funny: I can't reach my local Porsche dealer and many other german dealers on the internet because it seems they're offline. But as soon as I use the computer at work, it works. Strange things happen lately...

    Porsche's website quality leaves a lot to be desired. Very slow and unreliable. Seems like they need to invest in some server and bandwidth capacity.

    I've found that disabling Norton Internet Security on my PC helps with some of the pages.
