|OK I really could do with some help with this annoying problem|
I have tried alot of different things already suggested with no luck
This include's clearing temp files, restting winsock, rebooting rooter, checking DNS servers.....
Note: the problem is as stated there is absoloutley no issue with the actual connection dropping, P2P services also have no issue, but downloading with any browser from any download service including URL's such as nvidia driver and Microsoft, nearly always fail sometimes depending on the File hosting sites access conditions and parameters, pausing then resuming may continue the download untill it freezes again, though some times it just drops the download speed drops to 0 then message "an unexpected network error has occured"
This though I think is rather significant, I have no suh problems with a much older slower laptop running win XP running from the same router/Hub with virtually the same IP address, I saw on a forum I read that it maybe because downlaods are too quick and Net-limiter may be able to resolve this, however I have pretty much ruled that out because some downloading host sites have a very limited download speed, and as well I didn't really see a logic to his reasoning, maybe you do?
I am running Win 7 Pro sp1 through an ethernet connection , It really does seem to me like it is some kind of configuration issue because of the laptop not having any problem, but so far I have no idea how to resolve it
