I have a problem with downloading large files from the internet. I don't think its an ISP connection issue because a second computer on the same ADSL router works fine.
Files that are around 4 to 5 MB download okay. Larger files start to download okay but then eventually hangs. No error message appears. You can tell from the Connection Status dialoge box that network traffic has stopped.
The same thing happens when downloading from ftp sites using a separate ftp client (not MS IE).
Thank you for your suggestion of using a download manager. However, I don't think this is going to help when I downloading using an ftp client. The pc with the problem is a Dell Latitude 500M running XP Pro SP1. The pc without the problem is a shuttle desktop running XP home SP1.
Please keep it in the forum for all to see.
