Default Need Help Quick!!!

OK I am downloading some HUGE files, they're 612MB each. And last night when I left my house to go to a get together, I let the downloads keep running and they were at 51% complete, I get home and they're at 93% and frozen. The download speed isn't even showing up. So I was like, well I'll just go to sleep and in the morning I'll see what happens. Still it's stuck. I don't know what to do to get the downloads to complete. I mean my internet is still up and running, and I really really don't want to have to cancel them because they're huge and take a really long time to download, because there's four of them and they each take up to 2 and a half hours to complete.

I use Mozilla FireFox as my web browser if that helps.

Well one reason could be that the source stopped sharing that file.
And that means that there is nothing to do.
U could try just waiting and hoping that the source starts to share that file again, or then try to find what u are looking for from some p2p network.

Well I retried it, I went into settings and what not. I tried the torrent that Fedora Core listed, oh and that's what I was downloading was the FC4 iso's. But yes, I just decided to redownload them, man what a waste of time...

I guess in the next 6 hours of downloading over 2 gigabytes I'll just play Need For Speed Most Wanted.

BUt thanks for the help, I greatly appreciate it.
