Download Problems IE6 and Win ME

  Epirb406 18:32 23 Oct 2003

Hi all, abandoning complicated post below in a solve one thing at a time problem sorting approach, hope this OK.

Browser and system working fine.

If I right click and choose download on an exe file I get all the right boxes, choose name and destination and download begins, briefly.

I get a download of something like 200 bytes (Not constant)and then SOMETHING is stopping the rest.

No firewall, antivirus currently disabled.

Tried IE repair option. Hit all the defaults under tools and options.

Any ideas good people, have been casting around the net, some people seem to have the same problem but no solutions.

Cheers, Epirb.

have you checked if there any driver updates gor your wireless card, what make and model is it?

Its a US robotics 22 Mbps wireless adapter, matched with a PCMIA version of the same in my laptop.

Updated both drivers just a couple of days ago.

Cheers, Epirb.

How long have you had this problem?

  Epirb406 18:01 24 Oct 2003

Had the problem since I created this network!

Have emailed usr but no response so far.

Would love to know if there is a fix for this lack of functionality. The whole idea of this network was to get the computer into the living room, it only working 99% is an unbeleivable pain.

Any ideas folks?
