    Default Downloads randomly stop

    Lately out of nowhere my FTP downloads stop whenever they want which prevents me from downloading any big file. Right now I have to use torrents for everything.
    I've been looking for people on the net with similar trouble but everyones suggestions are either bogus or they have none.
    I did a reformat and it still stops so im wondering if there is a part of my computer that could be infected with something other than HD

    Yes, I should have said before. It happens with anything that is browser or download accelerators.

    Are you behind a router/firewall?

    It could be your ISP too, so call them and ask them if your connection is delivering optimal quality. I know cable ISPs can know that easily.

    It could also be your NIC. Try another one if you can get one from a friend/relative/whoever has one to spare.

    Network Interface Card. The ethernet port, basicly (and the circutry connected to it). If torrents work, but no other format, then it sounds like your having trouble maintaining a connection. Torrents kind of operate in a burst mode... thing. :P

    Umm... sorry can't be of much help past this, but I can't think of much more. 3Com cards used to have a nice diagnostics for NICs, but you know, I don't know of any cards that still have utilities like that. All I can think to do is run 'cmd' and then type 'ping www.somesite.com'. See what kind of packet loss you get from that.

    ok... at the command prompt, type [code]ping www.google.com[/code] It should return: [code]$ ping www.google.com
    PING www.l.google.com (72.14.203.99) 56(84) bytes of data.
    --- www.l.google.com ping statistics ---
    39 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 38083ms [/code] Only it will transmit 4 packets and give you the individual ms of each. And as you can see, this network hates me. Ping seems to be blocked... why the fuck would you block ping?
