    Time Out (XP Pro)

    How can I get this thing to give a file more time to download from the internet.I'm tring to download an update from Dell and it starts downloading (slowly)and then it stops and says this page can not be displayed. I just think it needs more time to load.

    Hi
    Here's something to try :

    1. Access your Modem Properties via Device Manager or Control Panel
    2. You need Advanced/ Extra Initialization Commands
    3. Add to this line (which is possibly blank at the moment ) W=128 . You may have to experiment with the value. What it does is to change the 'time-to-live' for packets i.e it will keep them longer in your deilvery stream.
    4. At the same time add s11=50 (that's ess eleven equals fifty). This speeds up the dialling of the number.
    5. If no joy, have you thought of a Download Manager, such as Fresh Download, free from here .
