A lot of times, when I'm downloading something, the download will simply stop, drop to 0 bits/second, and I'll have to pause the download and restart it from where it left off to get Firefox to continue downloading. Unfortunately, this doesn't work with really big files. It also doesn't work with programs like the Eclipse IDE, for which I'm trying to get some plugins to download, that don't support download pausing.

I've heard this is due to the router corrupting packets and causing my computer to drop them. Is there any way to deal with/eliminate this problem? Besides getting a new router?
