Downloads cannot complete
After a clean install (my first of Windows 7, from XP SP3), I found out I can't download properly files from the Internet. Tested: IE8, Firefox 3.5.2, Opera 10 Beta 2 1691. The downloads start, and after a (short, usually) while they stop. If they support resume, stopping/resuming works, that's how I managed until now, very annoying. Rapidshare or other services like it are out of the question.
I have a Siemens Gigaset SE361 router which is connected (cable) to my box. Configured as in XP SP3, all on auto, only added two DNS servers provided by my ISP. I ran the box in DMZ mode with same results.
I didn't install yet any AV or anything security related.
I understand that there are some uTorrent problems. I installed it, ver 2.0 Beta (it downloaded a 150 MB image flawlessly), but the problems with downloading from http (IMAP&FTP are affected too) were present before installing uTorrent.
Thank you very much for your time and help.
Edit: After finding that the router was the culprit in this situation, downloading is smooth now. The thing is that after a firmware re-flash and re-config, something (good) happened - the speed went up from 1,7 MBps to 4,8 MBps on a 6 MBps line. This is unbelievable - I feel that the firewall or wireless inside the damn router gave up, but they all work, just faster. I feel like activating extra-cores in the new Phenoms. My skeptical nature tells me something's wrong so I'll just go to sleep and double-check this wasn't a dream when I wake up
