I originally posted this message on usenet comp.os.ms-windows.networking.windows but I figured out that maybe some people here might give me a hint. :grin:
I have 4 computers, 1(win2k) connected by a wire, 3(2 win2k and 1 xp)
wireless.. to a router.

I already setup file sharing and everthing is fine, no problems
sharing small files 100mb-200mb or less. My problem are large files
like 200mb++. My internet connection is always lost when transferring
large files. I have to power down the router and turn it on again for
the internet connection to be available.

The odd thing is, it only affects the 2 computers involved in the file
transfer and everyone else is fine. This affects all the comps I have.
I thought I would be able to bypass this by creating a local server
for each computer and just use a browser to download the files(much
faster too) instead of using the windows explorer interface. But I was
wrong, the same problem plagues me.

I have no problems downloading any kind of file size like online games
with file sizes 300mb++ - 500mb++ or microsoft sdk's or ms vs ce and
vs updates 300mb++ each, or open source OS's...

The problems exists only on the LAN, and I'm suspecting this is a
router problem or I have to do some registry editing but I'm not so
sure of both. I don't know what to do but to burn these files which
consumes a lot of time and resources. Or cut the files into smaller
pieces then download individually then combine...

I don't like any of the solutions I've tried.

Here are the hardware I use.

Belkin 802.11b Wireless DSL/Cable Gateway Router
Belkin 802.11b Wireless PCI Network Card(for the 3 win2k's)
Microsoft Wireless G USB 2.0 Adapter(802.11g)
