What protocol, what program is doing the download?
I find it happens with http downloads with a browser. I'm assuming that
the web server is assuming high-speed internet and is timing-out before
things are complete on dial-up. Perhaps it has to do with
transparent-to-me proxies enroute.
I've never had the problem on ftp or rsync. For ftp downloads, I tend
to just use mc.
