A couple of days ago, I started being unable to connect to accounts.google.com, which handles logins to all kinds of google services.
I get this error in Chrome:
Error 126 (net::ERR_SSL_BAD_RECORD_MAC_ALERT): Unknown error.
In IE I get this:
I assume it is the same error, just wrapped up.
I run Win8 RTM.
On the SAME machine, using the same network card, in a VMWare workstation image running Win7, I am able to connect perfectly. On another of my machines on my network, I am also still able to connect with no problem.
My girlfriend uses the same network and has also complained a couple of times about this error (google calendar) - but this is anecdotal, since her technical troubleshooting abilities stop at "xxxx is broken". Her machine runs Win7. ;)
I have rebooted, cleared cookies, do not run any antivirus/firewall, have not changed network config. The first 3-4 days after installing Win8, I did not have any problems.
I have also searched, and found a hint about enabling SSL2.0 in connection settings, which did not help.
Anybody know something about this error and what I can do to fix it?
I blogged about the problem and setting MTU on the computer here.
