Recently updated to XP Pro and all seems to be going well
except whenI need to download patches from hardware and
software manufactures. Maybe other stuff as well but I
haven't tried yet.
Generally, every time I try to get a patch, like from
Epson for my printer or from Nero or others the following
I get the usual open or save as window. I choose save as
(or Open, I've tried both ways) and the download will
start. However, it generally doesn't continue, the
progress meter stops immediately and no more data is
received. About 5-10 minutes after I get the following...
"Internet Explorer cannot download 'insert file name' from
ftp.any.example (or download.soundblaster.com or others)
The connection with the server was reset"
Or, with Netscape I get "A network error occured while
Netscape was receiving data. (Network Error: Connection
reset by peer)
I don't think it's my browser(s) because both do the same
thing and I never had a problem before the XP upgrade.
Called my ISP and my connection is fine.
I'm running XP Pro with a cable modem set-up. Any help
would begreatly appreciated. Note, that all Webpages load
fine and email is perfect.
