I am running a 3.10 gigahertz AMD Athlon II X2 255 with Windows 7 Premium, IE 9 64 bit on a 3 meg DSL. All my firewalls and virus protection are disabled. I am using ADA to download to a file I created at C:/Adobe Master Collection. About 6 times in the last 10 days I have tried to get the download, but at around 35% ADA seems to stop and never get beyond that point. I have let it run at one point for 17 hours. I don't like being that vulnerable on the net, especially for something I may not buy. Any suggestions?
This most likely has to do with your ISP not caching files on tzheir own servers. Otherwise there is such a thing called load balancing... Even the biggest server farm can only handle so many requests at any given time... Adobe may be big, but they are not Amazon or Google....
Sorry, I misstated the speed, that should be 2Mbps. In fact I just ran a speed test from Dallas to Houston and download was 2.8Mbps. I have tried once again and ADA has stopped or paused at 35.25% of file downloaded and will not resume. Maybe it is a high traffic day. I'll try again later.
