Thumbs down Fetching News with my Kobo

I am having alot of trouble with my kobo fetching my news every morning.
If I had a dog it would be alot quicker! Sometimes it takes a half hour or longer to fetch my newspaper. I get error messages that it couldn't connect to the internet and yet if I hit F1 it immediately opens my browser and goes to the calibre website. Also if there is an update I click on the update and it immediately goes to the calibre download page and I can download the update immediately.

My question is if it can connect to the internet to do all that why can't it connect to the internet to fetch my news?

thanks,

Is this a Kobo question, or a Calibre question?

What newspaper? Does the newspaper website have regular/frequent downtimes? Perhaps it is the newspapers web server?

St. Louis Post Dispatch is what I am trying to download. I checked this morning

I guess its actually a Calibre question I will redirect to there
