    I've noticed that sometimes when I am downloading big files they do not finish downloading in Safari. Like I was trying to download the 10.6.8 update from, but it gets to 300mb and just stops.

    I don't know why because I'm still connected online, and everything else seems to be working. Like right now it's just stuck in my downloads window, but obviously I'm online or I couldn't be typing this.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    You need to give more details; wireless or via ethernet? what is your ISP? what is your setup?

    Actually the more I think about it, sometimes my internet will drop for a few seconds. This happens on my iMac and my Xbox 360. Maybe the connection drops and I can still get online, but the download doesn't reconnect to the server? I dunno, just guessing.
