This code challenge keeps responding with a communication error window...

does any body else have the same problem? or is it just me?

Are you using a wireless connection?

I had the same problem. Went through contacting the Treehouse Support team and everything. Only to discover that I couldn't submit via my laptop, but everything was fine on my desktop (which is directly connected to my router.). I did find, however, that if I refreshed the page, or restarted Firefox on my laptop, I could fix the communication error.

So, I guess try these:

  • If you're running wireless, close the gap between the computer and the router, hard wire or reset your connection
  • Try refreshing the page (If you have a lot of code written, save it. Copy and paste your code into notepad OR just simply copy and refresh. The code will remain in the temporary notepad and you can paste it when the refresh is done)
  • Try restarting your browser

I could be totally wrong on all of this, but it fixed my problem. May fix yours too. Good luck.

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my question! I restarted my browser and the problem went away... I also use Firefox... thank you for all the advice! All the best
