Connect your desktop directly to the modem. Just for diagnostics. Be sure your firewall is activated!
If this confirms that it's the router, start with resetting it.
For some reason I am unable to download large files, usually anything over 30-40mbs. I noticed it as I was unable to download a patch for Crysis, and then attempted to download other large files from multiple sites and experienced the same problem.
What happens is the download will start and stop with in just a few mbs and then not download any more.
When downloading files under 30mbs they download as normal.
I am able to view and browse the internet and game with out any issues.
I attempted to download large files on my laptop through the wireless connection and I experienced the same issue, so I think it's a problem w/ my router.
My desktop is hooked via hardwire to to the router.
My OS is Vista Home Premium
I7core 6mbs ram.
Modem : Motorola Surfboard
Router : Linksys WRTG54
Thanks for the help.
