Re: Internet DIES when I try downloading...

 Main computer is on an ethernet yes.

 

Everything else wireless.

 

Hmm, I don't think it's the site I'm downloading from, I've downloaded probably 10tb+ over the last 2 or 3 years but as soon as I've gone to Fibre and got a BT Hub 6 Router it's started failing? 

 

Seems weird... And it's getting tiring now. 😞

Re: Internet DIES when I try downloading...

What site are you downloading from?

 

Have you tried it on another computer?

 

Does it happen if you download from another site?

 

Does it happen if you are streaming?

Re: Internet DIES when I try downloading...

It could be the home hub 6 not coping, there are lots of reported issues with this home hub.

 

Its odd that the speed test is fine. Is this problem only during peak Internet usage times, as it could just be congestion.

 

Newt time you get a slow download, stop it, then run the speed tester again to see the results.

Let's not forget P2P clients either, if the upload is configured wrongly it will kill the download.

Re: Internet DIES when I try downloading...

Hi guys. 

 

It's happening on ANY download at all. As soon as roughly 40mb is downloaded in a few seconds, it crashes. It can be any file. A torrent. A zip file from the internet. A game from Steam. Anything at all. It's getting a bit silly now.

 

I've asked for a new router, hopefully it fixes it. 😕
