    If you're suing Wifi, you could be dropping packets alot. Try using a LAN cable. Mucho better.

    It could be that your connection is constantly dropping and you only notice on big files as they don't resume so easily.

    Have you spoken to your ISP?

    Are you sure it isn't just the site you are using? Try getting an iso from microsoft.com or a Linux distro as a test.

    If it is happening on various sites:
    Try a different network cable. Also try connecting directly to the modem if you are going through a router. If it still is flaky then trying a different network card would be in order. The last thing to try would be a new modem but that could be costly and require a MAC change from your ISP.

    WTF. 2K posts... HOW!?

    On Topic: Go direct. And not wireless? But looks like you covered that... If the downloads cancel or just break, use a download manager like FlashGet or JDownloader.

    Possibly an isp issue. You could try using a download manager. Most support resume if your net cuts out.

    it's the modem or the connection. The router has nothing to do unless you have the generic ones.

    Im using a D-Link 524 and it's the best one I have. My modem is loosing connection and trying to re-connect. it's so annoying if you have something very important to type and suddenly your connection stops for a bit. you will be pissed off if it will totally disconnects you and you need to turn off and on your modem.

    that's my situation here

    No, it was my router. Its all fine now once we bought another one.
    My old router was a D-Link, I don't know the model.
