Question Download impossible

Hi there,

searched for a thread to post this and didn't find one (wish I already had one of those problems discussed in other threads :-) ).

My problem: I can't download the 4496 auto installer. Download does not start at all or ends after 1K.

Already tried it with proxies, didn't work either.

Other files (from the ftp dir) work, and ping does too.

I try to download from Germany via T-Online/T-DSL. Might this be the problem?

Since I tried it very often now, and the server itself is always up I really don't understand it.

Try using a different browser, or using an ftp client. Use the 'save link as' option rather than directly clicking the .run file's link.

Are you downloading from linux? Try using wget from command line (if this fails there is no hope) j/k

Your ISP could be the problem, but if you can download other files outside your country I don't think they would have any reason to restrict access to nVidia in particular.
