Hey Guys

I have a 1meg broadband connection, the isp is utility warehouse and im using a sagem modem.

the connection has been fine untill recently, but now the internet is cut off at random times, ill leave my pc on whilst i go out to download a file and come home to see it disconected at 5%.

this is really doing my nut !!!!!

the message i get in the event log is as follows -

TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.

A temporary solution would be to download LeechGet. It can save downloads if you're disconnected and then finish them later. I will research this message that you are receiving.

What anti-virus program and anti-spyware program do you use?
