nasty download problem


Problem is that my downloads mostly get downloaded a bit and then they won`t continue. Same thing with yum, it downloaded 34% of xmms.i386 and no more activity. Can i solve this problem or depends it on my network administrator (i am in large network covering all 5 floors , if you know lasnamäe in tallinn, then you know what kind of building i mean) it includes truly many computers and switches

it would sound like a network issue really... if you use wget to pull down a large file, everytime the connection fails, you'll see an error and it will start again where it left off automatically. not a solution, but a workaround, and it might just provide some useful error messages. We have a similar issue where i work, every so often it'll be a "connection reset by peer" when wgetting internet data.
