Hello everyone,
           I am looking for a solution to a C# WebClient timeout issue.
           WebClient appears to have no way of timing out.
           Currently using Thread.Start to launch methods which call WebClient, using Thread.Join(MILLISECONDS) for a timeout.

          Using Thread.Start feels like overkill for my needs.
          (I am hitting 100's of devices using credentials and a simple HTTP request and simply need a way to timeout within 10 seconds)
Thanks :)

There is no way to timeout on a web request... your only real option is to kill the connection yourself after your timer goes off.. so yeah, Threads are your FRIEND...
