2GB files download limit
by ?eter - 4/9/07 1:40 AM
I have been trying to download America's Army (2.5GB) via http for a while now with no success. What happens is that the download just stops at the 2GB mark for no apparent reason. I tried using Firefox 18.104.22.168, IE6 and IE7 (which I downloaded against my better judgment) all with the same faliure. The first time, I tried to download it from gamearena.com.au (hosted by Bigpond) and all subsequent times, as unmetered content from my ISP (Internode).
I first googled the problem and came up with lots of questions but no answers. Then I emailed my ISP who are usualy outstanding for customer support (they haven't outsourced their call centers and don't plan to) but they too couldn't find a specific answer. They were however able to suggest that it was a Windows thing as there was nothing about my connection or firefox that would limit download size to 2GB.
So the question stands; How do I get Windows XP Media center 2005 to allow over size http downloads?
I do know that I can probably get it using P2P software but I'd rather not and I haven't found any ftp availability for it.
