Can anybody suggest a fix for having my computer time-out almost every 30 seconds when I'm trying downloads?

This is extremely annoying and I've had to install a download manager and basically click stop/resume every 30 seconds to do ANY downloads...try to imagine how many times I had to do that in order to download huge demos. :o

Anyhow, I've gone through my router settings and there's no setting that would affect the timeout time. Where do I go from here? BTW,I'm running XP.
 
right click ur background. go to properties. click screensaver. uncheck the "on resume, password protect" box

That's not what's causing my downloads to stop at 30 second intervals, but thanks.
 
Hmmm....could be a hardware problem with your modem or ethernet card (depending on how you connect to the 'net). Could also be a DNS timeout issue with your ISP as well.

Is it only downloads that time out?
Or does your internet stop loading pages for a few seconds once this happens?
