From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Suspect driver problem for Intel PRO/100 S (751767-004) NIC.  UP2DATE 
repeatedly stalls downloading large (>10MB) RPM for Mozilla on K6 platform 
w/96MB RAM.  NIC works properly with Windows 98SE.  Note:  This is the version 
of the Pro/100 with on-board 3DES support.

Repeatedly failed trying to run UP2DATE on NEW Workstation Installation of 

Replaced with 3COM905C NIC and problem disappeared.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Need Large RPM (say > 10MB)
2. Run UP2DATE (GUI) and select RPM

Actual Results:  Download stalled partway through although stall point varied.  
Unable to do anything but force closing UP2DATE.

Expected Results:  RPM should have downloaded properly.

Additional info:

I'm not sure this should really be classified as a RHN problem but I couldn't 
find a classification for Hardware Driver support.

Running fedora core 1.
Previously updated a few days ago.

Trying to re-install due to new kernel

Hangs, even if I redirect up2date to new mirror.

I am downloading a 512k dsl modem.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
