Why Are My Downloads Not Working?
While there is no way PRO EDU can know for sure what causes a download to fail, if a user is experiencing trouble with downloading that is pausing or stopping halfway through, or .zip files that cannot be opened, this is most likely attributed to connection with a servicing ISP.
.zip files might appear to have been downloaded, but often, the connection through a servicing ISP was weak, resulting in a loss of a portion of data—a simple reset to establish a new connection.
PRO EDU has found that these steps have fixed 95% of downloading issues associated with large files.
Internet SPEED does not always matter in association with downloading issues.
Possible Solutions Include:
- Go to www.speedtest.net or fast.com and run a test of the current connection. This will help ensure actual internet speeds. If the Internet speed is running excessively slow, this might add to the issues of downloading.
- Ensure that the download speeds recorded are the speeds at which the servicing ISP is providing. (this can oftentimes be much lower than agreed-upon Internet speeds advertised by servicing ISPs).
- Reset the modem and router and wait 10 seconds. Routers generally have a reset button. Using this function is generally advised before unplugging the system.
- The modem's connection should occur first and wait 60 seconds or until a solid green light or other visual indication that the internet connection is restored.
- If using a router, plug the router back in and wait for a solid green light or other visual indication that the internet connection is restored and the router is broadcasting a WiFi signal.
- Go back to www.speedtest.net and run another test, comparing the before and after speeds.
- Return to the unique download links received from PRO EDU and try the download again. (if experiencing a slower Internet connection, download no more than 1 link at a time.)
- A restart of the computer system and/or use of a different browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox may be required.
- Ensure that any VPN or download manager is turned off and that 3rd party software is not blocking the connection.
