if you download large files (100mb+) without a download manager do they get disconnected and cancel? or is the problem only with gaim

I don't have restriction on download.
The internet is disconnecting for a split of second...the browser doesn't even realise. But gaim does and after a 2 sec it's connecting back(it difficule to talk).
But last night after 23:30-00:00, and in the morning it worked fine.
If I don't find out the problem I will talk with my ISP.
thx

could it be a faulty cable? do you have another one to rule this out? if you said in your first post that it happens in both windows and linux then i would assume it to be a hardware problem

try pinging your router via LAN address "ping 192.168.0.1"(or whatever the add is). If it dosen't timeout it is probably your ISP's problem. If it does I would change cables then nic card.

I find out what the problem was, my neighbour was steeling internet with my MAC.
If it's trying to do it again what can I do?
