5.7.6 stalling on 2 gb download; 'stop' not stopping. (4 posts)

    been researching on your msg board and help, but my issue seems slightly diff and more recent: trying to download some wordpress site folders; the current site and backups, to get off lunarpages host server (i just learned i'm violating their policy by leaving old ones up). tried downloading several folders at once, now trying one 2.2 gb folder, but fetch still keeps stalling, and 'stop' button won't stop stopping, both of which i see may be their server's problem. read on your site to try 'resuming' but it's ghosted out and looks maybe just for uploading? tried setting up mirroring but not sure if that is helping; looks like it might be starting over and not just downloading remaining files.
    using a slightly older '08 macbook with yosemite. does ethernet help better than wireless?

    I would use the Mirror command. It will start over in the sense of looking at every file each time, but it should only download files that it has not downloaded already.

    when i wrote the above msg i had set it up but the download stalled out again. now i'm stopping the download, which probably will not actually stop, and then i guess i'll need to quite fetch and open it again and try to trigger a download correctly, but last night it made a new folder even tho' i directed it to continue into the stalled folder... so, still unclear how to do this correctly.. i also checked the PASV box as i read that suggestion in the msg board, but no solutions as yet.

    completed the main download i was after.
    any observations on my above issues still might be useful in future; i'll soon be making large uploads for a client.
