Could you complete a ping test using this site - Pingtest.net - The Global Broadband Quality Test
Upon completion please upload your results so we can see the stability of your connection. If you can please test to your recommended server but also pick a server outside of your country
Hi, I've tested with Pingtest.net before but it gave A grade to my connection. It doesn't happen to every file. It only happens to a small number of file. I am not unsatisfied with my internet connection, what I am unsatisfied is that I am sure that Firefox / Chrome could give no indication at all sometimes if the files downloaded stopped in the midway.
When I download, for example, 100 large files, say on average several hundred megabytes only for each file, there could be approximately 2-3 files which are corrupted/incomplete during the download, but the browser (either Firefox or Chrome) doesn't return with any message about the incomplete.
It is not a problem for me to re-download just a small number of files. But it's a problem that it doesn't return with any indication in the download windows that the file is actually not completely downloaded.
I want to try IDM, but their manual suggests that they could corrupt the file if Antivirus is running. Any idea about that?
Is there any reliable download manager? I am not looking for accelerator. I am looking for something that would check the integrity / completeness (or at least return with any text noticing that the file is interrupted or stopped) during and after the download.
