No acknowledgement of completed lesson

For the third time, I've encountered the same problem when completing a lesson: Duolingo does not acknowledge that I successfully completed the lesson (even if I powered through with no errors), and therefore I cannot proceed to the next (locked) lesson. I'm currently on Adverbs 2. I completed the first of nine lessons three times now (getting tired/frustrated doing the same thing over), and no triumphant music or lingots earned to acknowledge completion.

The only way I was able to overcome this issue in previous sections was to test out of the entire section. I don't want to do this for adverbs, however, since I really need the practice/new knowledge here (don't even think I could since there are 8 additional lessons I haven't covered).

HELP!!!!

Hi there! It sounds like you're behind a proxy or using satellite internet, which will cause these types of issues. Is that the case?

I have a broadband connection, and I access the network wirelessly with my laptop. I've tried using a different laptop, but I've encountered this three separate times in different sections.

Have you tried using a different internet connection?

Does signing out and back in sometimes help to clear up issues?

Ok, I switched to a third laptop, and I finally, received acknowledgement that I completed the lesson (after doing it yet again). My wireless is a bit slow at the moment, so I was surprised that it actually worked. I wondered if connection speed was somehow impeding the program, but I was having trouble when my connection was fairly fast and constant.

This sounds like an issue with your internet connection. If you have trouble with it (slowness for ex) it's possible that we wouldn't record the lesson :/
