My problem is my own desktop computer. It has suddenly and without warning decided that it is going to disconnect whenever I try to transfer very large files to or from it. I'm working with editing videos, and for weeks it would let me transfer to and from easily. Now, within the last few days it will not hold the connection. It will lose both the internet and the network connection, and I have to disable and enable to get it working again.
On average the files seem to take 10-15 minutes to transfer fully, and it might disconnect from 5-10 minutes into the transfer. It never used to. None of the others do. It's really very infuriating.
I've tried deleting and reinstalling the card's driver, I've reset the router. It still continues to drop the connection.
Has anyone else ever had this problem or have any suggestions on what to do about it? I don't want to run out and buy a new network card if it's not a hardware problem.. but I'm at a loss.
