Could you do a trace route for me?

 

just "tracert ecn.channel9.msdn.com" from the command line would be great.

 

I'm not sure what the problem could be since you are able to start the download (so you must be able to get to the server). One other user (linked below) reported that the problem (downloads failing from Australia) was resolved when he turned off a feature of his Anti Virus program, but I'm not sure if that would help anyone else with the issue.

I'm running MS Security Essentials and Windows Firewall, no AVG in sight. I downloaded about 30GB of Channel 9 and PDC09 vids @ 1mb/s in the days before the truncating began. My connection has not been shaped or anything, I'm getting 1mb/s on other things right now. I just tried getting that complexity video and it cut off at 1% (sometimes I get to the 30's).

 

Below is a ping and three tracert's, just for fun. My location is Brisbane, so 20ms to Sydney is reasonable.
