Download of any file stops prematurely

by imran ahmad / May 12, 2006 9:16 PM PDT

In Bangladesh, the speed of broadband is not very fast. Let's say 2kbps or less during the peak hours and 15kbps during the off peak hours.
So downloading a big file takes a lot of time which makes us sleep until it finishes.
So the problem is, nowadays the download stops showing that the file is fully downloaded but it actually isn't. i.e. when i start downloading a 10 MB file, it starts to download it, but ends prematurely after downloading 3-4 MB.

My Os is Win XP SP2
P4 2.4GHz 256MB RAM

It also sounds like your ISP may be limiting your usage, check with them.

Another possibility may be the time-out settings for your dial-up. Have a look at them and uncheck the box wher it says "disconnect if idle", that should cure the problem.

ISP provider issue

Who is your ISP? I was having the same issue a month ago and I found out that my ISP was limiting the number of my downloads.
