Hi @enidgertmenian Are you trying to access Dropbox website from your computer? Can you please open a new browser tab/window and visit Is the internet connection in your computer working? Like can you open other websites?

So, Murphy's law, I get home and it's working on my home computer.  Will try that when I'm back at work.  Thanks so much for your quick response!
