I just started noticing this today. I use Google Chrome, and just about everything I'm trying to download quits after about 4-5k have been downloaded. Occasionally I can get it dl more, but they still terminate too soon. I've tried to dl with Safari as well, but I still have the same issue.

I fixed permissions on the disk and that didn't help.

I'm running Lion on a 2009 Mac Mini. Any ideas?

Are you losing the connection with your wireless network? Perhaps changing the preferred order of wireless networks (make sure your network is at the top) and the security protocol on your router would help.

Try setting up a new user on your system and log into that account and try the download. This might help rule out an issue in your profile.

I'm not sure why I didn't think of this sooner, but I disable my AV (forgot I even had one) and all was well. I checked my Norton logs and saw that every broken download was tagged as an ARP Cache Poison (falsely). I disabled the Norton Vulberability thing and enabled the Firewall in Lion instead.
