    I just downloaded an ISO image, it has gotten the entire file but it continues to 'get the file' it is slowing down at around 100bytes a seconds but as im on a 100M/bit connection that will take a fair while.. anyone else had something like this??

    In all likelyhood the file is completely downloaded, but the server's "you're all done" message did not get through. If you press the Stop button you should have a complete file.

    I'm having the same trouble. Did you ever find a solution?

    I believe that that the most likely cause for this problem is a bug in the router; it drops one of the two connections that Fetch has with the server because there's no traffic on that connection while the file is being transfered. But without that connection there is no way for the server to tell Fetch that the transfer is done.

    If you click the Stop button you should end up with a complete file.

    I would try to upgrade the firmware in your router to see if that makes any difference. Also, I'd be interested in knowing the brand and model number of your router -- I'm trying to compile a list of routers with this problem. I know that the D-Link DI-524 is one. The only router that I'm sure is immune to this problem is the Apple Airport Extreme Base Station.

    Thanks,
