    I've had a lot of trouble downloading anything over 5 megs big, lately. Usually they go to some percentage, then the download speed drops to zero.

    I experienced this on Rapid Share (on all mirrors). Then it also happened while trying to download Yahoo Widgets, and then some other downloads from various sites.

    Is this my ISP's fault? Can anyone explain? Thanks!!

    Nope, it's a standard broadband connection. I've e-mailed my ISP for info.

    This connection is pretty slow at times. In the busy hours I get like 9kbyte/s...

    If you've been running lots of torrents recently, you may have been targeted for bandwidth throttling.

    No, I haven't been using torrents at all.

    So does this all have to do with a crappy ISP?

    Check if your security settings are blocking the downloads.
