    I connect to the internet using a LAN system. Since the speed of the LAN has recently been increased from 500KB/Sec to 1MB/Sec. Since this has happened I have been having trouble downloading. Downloads only get part way through and then the download freezes (The MB and time remaining counters stop). If I restart the download the same thing happens. It appears to me as if the Network Card can't cope with the new LAN speed and is freezing up. However if I want to surf the internet or get my mail I have no problems. My laptop on the other hand which is a Pentium II 300 has no problems working on this Network

    I have a PIII 1000 on which I am running Windows 2000 using a Genius GF100TXRIII Series Network Card (In my system device manager it appears as Real Tek 8139A PCI Fast Ethernet Adaptor). I have tried changing the drivers but the problem remains the same.

    i dont know if there is a problem with the network card you could always remove it and reboot and let windows redetect it ....or you could try hooking the modem up to usb and see what happens:D

    You could try another download manager. Check Out http://www.zdnet.com go to the free dwonloads section. My 10/100 nic card works quite well at 1.2MB/Sec on my ADSL line. Sounds like your download manager is droping the ball on you during a download. It's worth a try before you start buying new parts. Marturo
