    I have been having problems downloading either files or email attachments that were fairly large, say 4 mb or larger. I'm running XP, have 500 meg of memory, etc. Everything has been working fine except when I try to download any large file, the download would just quit about 1/2 way through. The computer wouldn't freeze, the download would just quit. On a hunch, I removed my Ativa router. Bam, problem solved. I just downloaded a 65 mb file with no problem. Other than buying a Linksys router does anyone have a suggested solution? Appreciate any help.

    hey guys this is my first post in here so hello to all!!
    Well my problem is pretty similar to what this other guy mentioned, but sometimes i cant even browse on the internet, the pages wouldnt open. It makes no sense cuz the internet works fine n out of nowhere i cant browse or do anything online, i already updated the firmware but still. So do u guys have any idea what might be causing this?

    I have an issue with the firmware. It will successfully download, but I can't open the file with any program because it's a ".BIN" file...so how do I open the file to get the firmware? As far as internet connection, it's working just fine, but I can't download large files (I really want Mozila Firefox!) :confused:

    Here is the instruction to solve those unfinished load/download problems.

    Assuming that you have internet running through your router, and that it is experiencing those unfinished downloads, video loads and page malfunction.

    1. Open up IE or Firefox. On address bar, type in "" and click enter. This should bring up the default Ativa Wireless Setup page.

    2. On top right, there is a Log In button, click it. If this is your first time login in, leave it blank and submit. You can change this later under System setting (inside) if you want.

    3. Before we solve this problem, check up on the following:
    a) Under the Internet WAN tab > Connection Type > select Dynamic.
    b) Wireless > Channel and SSID > Disable ESSID Broadcast, also set wireless channel to AUTO.
    c) Wireless > Security > set up your security, you should know what to do. WEP, WPA, what ever floats your boat.

    4. Now the most important thing. Click Firewall, and DISABLE IT!!!:eek:
    By doing this, it said that you'll will be vulnerable to hacker etc. blah.blah.blah, but with wireless security and virus program/window firewall should be enough to make you stop worrying. Click apply changes, and you should be good to go.

    If this doesn't work, call the TECH support of Ativa. They are there to help 24/7. I think.
