Windows 7: IE11 Download resume

Resuming downloads is not up to the browser, but the server the files are hosted on. If the server supports resuming downloads, you'll be able to resume the download. If not, you won't. Again, simple as that. It's not a problem in IE.

I click on the download link and Save As and the filename is correct. In the C:\Downloads it shows the filename .partial

Its the fact that these 800kb files take 5 hours to download so I wanted the resume to function.

I downloaded the first rar file on WinXP yesterday but I had to use FireFox as IE8 is to old.

How can an 800kb file take that long to download?

If that's true then it's most definitely an issue with the server you're downloading from. And again, it's not up to IE to offer you resumable downloads, but the server.

I would look at the real issue,
800kb taking 5 hours to download
Seems you isp/ modem/ router should be looked at closer,

Its my lousy ISP on a BTHomeHub2 which I pay top price for £34 a month.

This is my laptop on Wi-Fi.



I've used speedtest before:





I've thought of changing but its hard to find a good one without paying for a 12 month contract. Any recommendations for a UK ISP?

BT are installing fibre optic they did a survey a while ago and loads opted for this.

My brother in law is on BT and he lives in the next street and he's been on fibre optic all year. I enter my post code in the BT site and it says not available Sky and Virgin are the same.

Thanks for the update,
Is there a wired option to this modem/ router ?

If you scroll through the speed test thread you'll see many people posting results from the uk

Sorry for the delay.

The router is hard wired into my bedroom. I had a connection problem a few years ago and a BT engineer came out to check it. He checked the connection in the bedroom and the main socket in the hall which was a plugin connection with the filter. He said these plugin connection can go faulty, I asked him to hard wire it in, which he did.

He went out and checked the connection up the pole outside and that had a bad connection.

Hi,
There are two in one models but all routers must have a modem,
Routers are for wifi signal but you can connect with a wire,
I'm saying connect to the router with a Ethernet cable if not all ready,
Cheers.
