I am experiencing a problem when trying to download files from various websites. The problem seems to occur with files that are 1 MB and larger. The file will start to download. After about 20 seconds I receive an error message that states "Internet Explorer cannot download (file name) from (web site). The connection with the server was reset."

I am using IE 8. I have changed the modem speed to 57600 and that did not help. I have been in contact with the technical personnel with my ISP and they have not solved the problem yet.

Any ideas that I might try? :confuse:

Thank you in advance for your help.

You might try an alternate browser. I have been using Chrome for a while... Others find Firefox to be their favorite. There are lots of browsers out there. They are free & you may find it a viable work-around for the problem.

Trying a different web browser may help. Sounds like you are on dial up and that could be causing an issue. If the download slows down or stalls the hosting server will close the connection due to it not seeing any activity with the download. You can try a different browser and see if that helps. Right now I recommend Chrome because it is faster then firefox but it does have some flaws, firefox beta 4 works great. Firefox 3 is good too but it does load a little slower.
