This message gets issued when you have "auto-detect an internet connection" turned on (in the Advanced tab of the Program Options). Your problems can be explained by one of two things:
1) There was a "bug" in 2.0.4.alpha2 where Awasu would think you were not connected if IE was in "work offline" mode. This setting is, in fact, a system-wide setting and while Awasu is actually correct in deciding that you are offline if you are in this mode, it's very confusing since it looks like you are online. We've made some additions for the next alpha2 to show warnings, etc. if this is the case.
2) Detecting whether a machine is connected to the net is a remarkably fiddly and unreliable process. It may be the case that the new algorithm is sometimes returning the wrong results. If (1) is not the cause of your problems, let us know and we'll give you a few things to try.

No, they're not related. You can try to address this by creating a DEBUG.INI file
in your user's home directory that looks like this:
Code: Select all
where ... is some number. The default value is 120, increasing it should help fix the error. I would start at 150 and go up in 30's.
