Can you update your post to include the output of sessionInfo() so we can see what versions of R and biomaRt you are using.

If you're running listMarts() with no other options then you shouldn't be ending up on the useast mirror site, so some redirection is taking place somewhere. Since the mirror is working for you in the browser, you can try specifying it explicitly in your call e.g.

listMarts(host = "http://useast.ensembl.org")


As an aside, when using this forum, it's helpful to add the name of the package you're trying to use as a 'tag' so the package author gets notified by email of any activity. I'd also advise removing 'job' as this just makes the post look like spam to me!
