[Problem] Remote installing software freeze

Hi there,

I tried finding my problem on google for a long time but i can't seem to find the solution.

Im running debian linux, have sshd installed, i have wireless internet installed.
I downloaded putty on my other windows xp computer also ssh secure shell for remote access to the server.

Im trying to install steam remotely, i looked up the guide and everything runs fine, but at a random percentage of installing suddenly the install hangs on a percentage, it has been hanging on 29% it has been hanging on 12% all at random. Everytime i try to run the install again it hangs somewhere else. killing the command is no problem.

Maybe you would say i need to wait but ive been waiting an hour for one line, that is way to much.

example of install:
76.55% .\hl2\sound\physics\glass\glass_impact_soft3.wav
76.58% .\hl2\sound\physics\glass\glass_impact_soft4.wav
76.61% .\hl2\sound\physics\glass\glass_impact_soft5.wav

then freezes for ages.

Installation works 100% fine when i run the command directly on the server.

But since i need to rely on remote access in the future this is not always an option.

I also notice that the direct installations seem to run much faster then i try it remotely.

ive installed screen and tried to make a screen, detached myself from screen log off. And found out 1 hour later that it was hanging again when i reattached myself on the screen.
So i know it's not a dissconnect issue between client and server at least.

Does anyone have an idea what this problem might be? I would really appriciate the help.
