Default Disconnected


Why do I get disconnected from the internet when i'm in the middle of downloading files from a file sharing programme such as limewire, bearshare, kazaa or winmx? This problem has only just occured as I had no problems before. I can download from any other sites without any problems, but not file sharing ones.

All replies most welcome.

I heard somewhere down the line that certain websites were being flagged by the ISP's on an agreement with the intertainment industry and auto disconnects were being used. Just rumours but it may be what is happening

In Kazzar can it be because the other person turns their comp off?
