3 Different computers on my network all with different copies of XP....

every time I do updates, it'll download 1 or 2 of them and just stop
downloading.

It'll say half the file is downloaded, I can leave it for hours and nothing
happens. If I close it and restart or even reboot, it'll continue from
where it left off, maybe download another meg or so then stop again.
Sometimes it doesn't even restart. After restarting the process a bunch of
times to successfully download a 500 kb file it verifies it and installs no
problem... its just the downloading part is where the issue is.

Any suggestions?

Router may be going defective, LAN cable is unterminated, 2 computers have
the same IP address, etc.
Eliminate all other computers at the router point, see if that helps (maybe
bad cable), bypass the router if you can.

Ahhh thank you my wize friend. I connected each PC directly to the modem 1
@ a time and they all downloaded everything first time. It's still strange
tho because I would only have that problem when downloading from MS servers,
like downloading the new messenger gave me troubles, and so did office
updates. Oh well, I guess a new router is in order.

One small question if you don't mind, what do you mean by the lan cable is
unterminated?
