    ???..... Well , perhaps you could let us in on what sort of file you are (were ) trying to D/L ? What operating system are you using ? Have you ever been able to D/L a file of that size before ? Is the site you are trying to D/L from a reputable one ?
    Are there any limitations as to the amount you can D/L from imposed by your service provided?
    Perhaps the file you were trying to D/L was incomplete or corrupt.

    Let us know and possibly we can assist you .

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    the file i'm downloading is a avi file. i'm using windows xp. no i haven't been able to download that size before because it does what i explained before. its reputable site. no limitations from my service provider. think that answers all the questions.

      ???.... So your d/l always stops at 120 mb or just that one ?
      Are you trying to D/l a movie by any chance ? Is this file coming from a p2p source by any chance ......?

      Do you get any error messages ?

      I'm not being nosey , but you seem to be very tight lipped as to what it is your trying to d/l ...........The more info you can provide the easier it is to find a solution.

      Have you tried to get the file using a download manager ?

      The source may be bad. If this only concerns one file, do not bother looking into it.

      Are you trying to stream?

      The transmission may be timing out.
