I first notice this problem with my downloads, which would be fine for any given amount of time and then stop. The progress before the downloads stopped was not constant and not all downloads stopped. These were standard browser downloads. I then came to the conclusion that my connection was resetting after checking browser logs and noticing some inconsistency with browser surfing. Does anyone know of a way to fix this problem? Although I have tried much of the obvious and non-obvious methods, I have yet to find a fix. I am running on a network and although I am connected through hardline, there is a wireless connection on the network. This occurs in various browsers.
I'd run some anti-virus software on the system.
Yes you may have some worms or virus.
Easy way out would be getting a download manager :) (temporary solution) Check if your router/firewall is doing something fishy or if something like, the MTU size is too high etc etc
