can't download files > 10K

After reinstalling W95 on a new motherboard I can't download
(browser or ftp) files > 10K. Files smaller than this work fine.
When attempting to download a large file, the file transfer starts
but stops after the first 6-8K are transfered. Occasionally, the
machine will also lock up. File uploading works fine as I can upload
files of any size without any problems.

Here's my configuration:
      - Asus RP4 motherboard with Pentium Pro 166 CPU
      - EIDE 2.5GB disk
      - Ethernet card attached to ISDN network

I've swapped out the ethernet card with another similar model
and the newer one doesn't work either. Both cards work fine in
an NT machine on the same network. The motherboard was working
fine in a SCSI-based NT system on the same network.

      Thanks in advance.

you might try an MTU Repair Wizard.  I WOULD STRONGLY CAUTION YOU TO LOOK INTO THIS PROGRAM BEFORE USING IT.  

If you cannot find the file, let me know.  I'll search and post the address for you.  

this program can change the maximum downloadable file size, essentialy.

emieng, don't use any MTU program with OSR2 Windows 95b. Have you gone through the Bios setup thoroughly? What do you have in your autoexec.bat and config.sys? Lastly, in Control Panel, System, performance tab, file system, change the typical role of your computer to server, if you haven't already, as the improves file performance.

Scandisk then Defrag won't hurt either.

How about feedback ?

emieng, you mention that you replaced the motherboard. When you did this, explain the type of motherboard replaced and what it was replaced with. Also, did you reinstall Windows 95 after making this replacement?

I solved the problem late last night. It was a BIOS setting that I thought was benign enough that I skipped over it the first round of BIOS setting changes in which I was focusing on IDE-related problems. The BIOS setting was "Adaptor BIOS Shadow Cacheable" which says that the option allows the BIOS Shadow to be cached for faster operation of the adaptor area. All I can say is "Huh?" With quality documentation like this it's almost a miracle anyone ever gets a motherboard running successfully :-)
