Thanks Slávek. Thought I would give this a try . It did resolve mirror.xcer.cz but the connection then timed out over 5 tries. Perhaps someone else might try this in case for some reason my IP address is a factor ? Ping mirror.xcer.cz also failed. I do have a working internet connection as ping google.ie (my country Google domain) was absolutely fine with no packet loss
