Docker pull i/o timeout issues

I recently started working with docker and .net and have been trying to pull the latest image for dotnet, but keep getting timeouts and sometimes connection refused.

I am not sure if the issue is just my computer or network, or if it’s related to Microsoft’s registry (MCR).

I am not on a VPN, just using Comcast cable for internet at home.
Windows 10 has the latest updates and Docker also is the latest version (4.1.1).

Below is the error I get from the command window (running as admin).
Let me know if anyone else is having issues or have advice on how to fix.
