Wireless connection cannot download exe files

  Lionel M 15:54 04 Mar 2007

I have a Linksys WMP54G wireless network adapter. It operates correctly except that I cannot download any exe files. After specifying 'Save' and a file name, either:
nothing happens; or
a very small amount (e.g. 13k) downloads
All other files types download correctly.
I have tried a different wireless adapter using the same modem-router, and this correctly downloads all files including exe. I have also checked a USB modem and this works fine.
I have reinstalled the driver, to no avail. I have looked at the Registry entries for the 2 adapters but cannot find any obvious remedy.
I have concluded the problem cannot be with my ISP, my modem/router or my browser settings.
